Custom platfrom bundle?

Forums > Books

Good evening....

From the book description it looks like the platform bundle is a good start to develop for several platforms as I intend to....but....

I would rather prefer to have Hacking for iOS in that bundle instead of server-side Swift...also why Advanced iOS Vol. 2 is there instead of Vol. 1 beats me as well (o;

Is there a way to get a custom platfrom pack?

thanks in advance richard


Paul has put the answer at the bottom of the Course Bundles page.

Some people ask whether I can create a custom bundle with the exact set of books that fits their needs. I'm afraid this isn't possible – we need to create every bundle by hand, then update each bundle as book updates are released, and it would be an admin nightmare trying to update 20 different bundles with varying book contents.
