We are donating 70% of author royalties to Code Club – a not-for-profit organisation that runs a UK-wide network of free volunteer-led after-school coding clubs for children aged 9-11.
We passionately believe that diversity within the IT industry must improve, and efforts must start in our schools. From under-representation of women in STEM subjects to the ever-present gender imbalance, from startup sexism scandals to discriminatory recruitment practices – the IT industry is in crisis right now, and we need to invest in the next generation of IT knowledge workers to ensure these problems do not continue.
Given Leanpub’s royalty rate of 90% minus 50 cents with author-centric rounding, a purchase of our book at the minimum price of $20.00 will yield a donation of $12.26 and a purchase at the suggested price of $25.00 will yield a donation of $15.40.
(90% * 20.00) – 0.5 = $17.52 total royalties (rounded up)
70% * 17.52 = $12.26 royalties to Code Club
(30% * 17.52) / 2 = $2.63 each to authors
(90% * 25.00) – 0.5 = $22.00 total royalties
70% * 22.00 = $15.40 royalties to Code Club
(30% * 22.00) / 2 = $3.30 each to authors
