Bre Pettis Shows Off New MakerBot Book at CES


MAKE_Conference_Badge-CESOur pal Bre Pettis of MakerBot was all smiles at CES today with his new MAKE book in-hand, Getting Started with MakerBot (co-authored by Anna Kaziunas France and Jay Shergill). We’re excited to have this book out in the wild now too. Congrats to Bre and his team!

To celebrate the release, we’re offering 20% off on the book in the Maker Shed, valid for the print version, the PDF, or both. Use code “CES” at checkout. This discount will be valid all through CES week (until 11:59pm PT on Sunday, Jan 12).

And if you’re at CES, Bre will be giving away and signing copies at 4pm in Booth #32025, LVCC South Hall 3/4, Upper Level & Connector.

    The owner of the business writes a separate book on how to use his business’s product… isn’t that an admission that his product’s documentation isn’t up to the job? I’m not seeing the angle here that looks good for them.
