Books Giveaway: Winners


Over last weeks we have selected dozens of useful development and web design-related books. Not all of them were available which is why we’ve decided to give away at least the books which are available now and keep the rest for future giveaways. Consequently, we provided you with the opportunity to win 8 of them in our book giveaway1.

The response was literally overwhelming. Over 3800 readers have participated making the post probably the largest article ever published. And now, as the comments are closed, it is time to announce the winners of the giveaway which have been selected randomly.

So here are the winners: the number in the brackets in the last column stands for the comment number of the participant.
