Ever wonder how so many great developers seem to get so much done?
You probably aren't getting enough out of your text editor.

With this book, you will easily save 30 minutes each day. That's an extra three weeks each year.

Time is a huge factor in staying productive. Your editor is the one tool you spend most of yours in and you should invest in optimizing your workflow skills. You'll benefit from them everyday. Wes has some of the best insights in workflow of anyone I know.

FAQ

I lost my email. Can you resend me my download links?

Enter your email here:

Does this book cover Sublime Text 2 or 3?

While you should be migrated to version 3 already, this book covers both versions 2 and 3 - when there are differences or new functionality in a later version I make a point of saying so and offer solutions to users still on version 2.

Can I use paypal?

The site isn't setup to use paypal, but if you wish to use it - send me an email to wes@wesbos.com and we can arrange to have it sent.

What format does the book come in?

The book is available in PDF and epub formats and is 100% DRM free. You can read the book on any mobile phone, tablet or computer. The PDF version is styled, so I recomend reading that version over the epub.

What if I'm not thrilled?

I only want your money if you are happy with the product! If you aren't satisfied, please send an email to wes@wesbos.com with a copy of your receipt and I will refund you.

Do you offer a student discount?

Absolutely! Send me an email with some proof that you are a student - such as from your student email address - and I'll send you a discount code.

I have another question!

Sure - email me at wes@wesbos.com or give me a call 416-833-3641!

This is the end.
