Yet Another DeDRM afternoon

Today, I agreed to my first programming job! More on that another time. To celebrate, I got myself a copy of "Effective Javascript" by David Herman.

I decided to give Kobo a try, having been repeatedly disappointed by Barnes and Noble, and not having a Kindle. I thought Kobo was supposed to be DRM-free. I'm not entirely sure how I thought they were doing that when everyone else is trying to lock you into a books-as-a-service ecosystem, but I did.

In any event, it came wrapped in gross Adobe Digital Editions DRM. So, I just spent the last hour stripping it off and then deleting my Kobo account. To save any of you the trouble I went through, here's some links that were useful in a sea of not-useful stuff.
