I usually have a whole list. PeepCode, look up PeepCode. Jeff's does very well. Let's see, Rueben from Bidsketch . It's a total one-man operation. He just dramatically increased his prices, and he's doing fantastically . Bidsketch is all about preparing beautiful, templatized proposals for your clients. There's so much, FreshBooks, Harvest, all these other time trackers which make way more money than I do. There's a lot. A lot.

…prefer videos like this to be free. But Geoffrey had the idea to begin with and his PeepCode team did all the hard work. I just showed up one Friday morning for a couple hours of design practice. So if the material is useful to you I hope you'll support their effort and buy the videos at $ 12/each.

Here are the links:

About a year ago, I was working with PeepCode to create a Git Workflows screencast based on a short git workflows book that I had written. Unfortunately I had to abandon the project due to lack of time, but the book remains alive, and is more or less accurate to the current version of git. If you find any mistakes, please let me know. Otherwise, please enjoy: The Git Workflows Book

I badgered thoughtbot on Twitter the other day about their new book on Backbone.js . Full disclosure: I did the music for the PeepCode video on Backbone , which is obviously a competing product. But I'm really looking forward to this Backbone book and I can't wait to read it, so I was frustrated when I asked thoughtbot how much material they had so far, because they told me all they had was the table of contents.

This led to some snark about $ 40 being a lot for a table of contents .
