Black Friday deals for JavaScript developers

Offers on courses, books, tools and more.

Note: We do not receive any commission for these links. We've just collected deals together here because we didn't want to clutter up JavaScript Weekly today! :-) We found these deals via this open call and by searching for ourselves.

The annual shopping bonanza that Black Friday has seemingly become isn't all just getting new socks or half price Amazon Echos — we've found a variety of offers aimed at JavaScript developers too.

Please note that we're not responsible if someone changes their prices or pulls an offer early, so check before you buy anything. But with that said, here's our list of deals on various courses, tools, and books that you may want to check out:
