CommitStrip - Rise of the Coders: a Book about the Future

€166,720

 At CommitStrip, we’ve brought you nearly 1000 daily webcomic strips about life as a coder. Now we’re launching our first book in English, including a selection of our best strips, some brand new content and a surprise!

Over the years we’ve spent drawing and writing about the day-to-day life of developers, we’ve watched the software community grow at rocket-speed. We’ve seen how software and code is infiltrating every aspect of our society. It seemed natural to make this theme the focus of our book.

So get ready for our brand new book: CommitStrip - Rise of the Coders.

Interested? Check out more details below - in CommitStrip format of course :) But just before that, let's update you on the on-going stretch goal!

Risks and challenges

We are experienced. In our 2013 campaign, we surpassed our crowd-funding target and shipped our books all over France and Europe.
Since then, we have sold 1500 books and distributed them all over Europe.

There are 2 risks :
- Printing: it can run late. That's why we planned a 1-week buffer.
- Shipping: we're going to be sending a lot of books worldwide, we already have quotes for 2000 to 5000 books, shipped from France. We are confident that all orders will be shipped on time.

Whatever happens, if for any reason someone doesn't get their book, we'll ship a new one ! In our budget, we planned a large buffer to be able to resend lost shipments.
