It sold one million copies during its first month on sale, and passed the two million mark during its first four months. Those are impressive numbers for any game, let alone one that spawned from a user-generated mod and is still in the alpha stage of development.

But DayZ (and its me-too competitors, The War Z and Rust) is one of the only places for gamers to fend for themselves in a lawless, digital world. Players are tossed into an abandoned wilderness with few supplies and are left to their devices to find a way to survive through unpredictable encounters with other desperate survivors….

Hebdo’s usual circulation is around 30,000, but the surviving staff are planning to print one million copies of next week’s run, in a gesture that’s equal parts defiance and grief. Eight members of the magazine’s staff were killed in the attack, alongside four other victims.

We have another great competition for you this week – Written by Janna Hagan from Student’s Guide to Web Design, we have 5 copies of her ebook A Student’s Guide to Web Design Portfolios to giveaway.

All you have to do to enter this competition is leave a short comment below telling us why you would like to win a copy of this ebook.

About the Book: A Student’s Guide to Web Design Portfolios

As a beginner or a student designer, it can be hard to build a portfolio when you don’t have much experience. In A Student’s Guide to Web Design Portfolios, learn step-by-step, the process to producing a top-notch design portfolio.

From the author, Janna Hagan:

“As a designer, I’ve definitely made mistakes with my portfolio when I was just starting out. I was undercharging and undervaluing my services because I felt like I didn’t have enough experience, which showed through on my portfolio. Once I started developing my portfolio properly and marketing myself better, I found that I was starting to get more work requests. As I continually worked at improving my design portfolio, I found that I was turning down projects because I didn’t have time! Now, on average, I get about 2 work requests per day and I’m not even out of school yet.”

“I’m hoping that my insight in this eBook can help you position yourself in the same situation I found myself in. If you create an effective portfolio, clients will start coming to you, rather than the other way around. I take you step-by-step through what you need to include on each page of your portfolio, so there is no confusion. Turning your portfolio into a hard-working, lead generation tool while you’re still starting out will help you become successful later on in your professional career.”

What’s included in the ebook:

  • The Book – Complete PDF & ePub versions.
  • Exclusive Interviews – Seasoned designers provide their insight on common mistakes they see on portfolios and how to make yourself stand out from others.
  • Detailed Worksheets – These worksheets will help you plan and think through each page of your portfolio – almost like a checklist.

eBook Giveaway: Win One of Three Copies of the Truth About HTML5

screenshot

Recently, author Luke Stevens published an awesome article on Design Shack titled, “HTML5: Hype, Substance and Scrutiny“, which took a fascinating look at what HTML5 really is and isn’t and even strayed from the typical rhetoric by offering up some serious critiques.

Today we’re following that up with a giveaway of Luke’s amazing book, “The Truth About HTML5.” Read on to learn more about the book and see how you can win!

The Truth About HTML5

So what’s this book all about? Will it teach me anything practical? Absolutely. Here’s a spot-on summary from the book’s website:

This is a book for web designers, web developers, and front-end coders who want to get up to speed with the why and why not of HTML5 in 2012. This is the book that isn’t afraid to point out what everyone gets wrong about HTML5’s new markup, so you don’t make the same mistakes.

This is the book that will show you what rocks in HTML5 today and what the future holds for interactivity and video now Flash is dying. This is the book that doesn’t think marking up a basic web page should be a quasi-religious exercise where the high priests of HTML5 must be consulted for their interpretation of the holy texts (the HTML5 spec).

This is the book that doesn’t pull its punches. This is the book for web professionals who think for themselves. This is the book that tells the truth about HTML5.
