Server-Side Swift Celebration Giveaway Winners – and Last Day for Discount!

Check out the winners of our Server Side Swift giveaway — and don’t forget today is the last day to grab the discount on our new server-side Swift books and bundles! By Chris Belanger.

Save for later

The Server Side Swift Celebration has officially drawn to a close!

We’ve had great fun showcasing our new Server-Side Swift section of the site, all of our new server-side Swift books and video courses, as well as all of the great teams behind them. We hope you found something useful or interesting along the way!

But there’s just one thing left to take care of: the Server-Side Swift Celebration Giveaway! Anyone who commented on the original launch post, telling us why they were interested in server-side Swift, was automatically entered into our draw.

We’ve chosen three people at random who commented on the original post, and they’ve each won their own copy of the Server Side Swift Super Bundle!

And the Winners Are…




But wait — since we received so much love for our new Server-Side Swift content on Twitter as well, we’re also awarding a free copy of the Server Side Swift Super Bundle to the following people who commented on Ray’s tweet about the celebration:




Congratulations! We’ll be in touch shortly via email to arrange delivery of your Server Side Swift Super Bundle.
