The festive season probably wasn’t the best time to begin such an adventure but that’s what the clock dictated so, after some frenetic coming-to-terms with new software (O’Reilly’s Atlas publishing platform), workflows, formats and the like, I managed to get the first two draft chapters in last week. I get a short <phew> and it’s on to the next eight I’ve got to write by April. O’Reillys are, understandably, hard taskmasters and I’m suddenly faced with all these writing deadlines and flashbacks to the last year of my PhD.
I aim to be blogging about the book chapters as they take shape and I’ll save a full run down of the books aims for another post but for now I just want to mention a mailing-list I’m starting to try and keep any interested parties up to speed and, more importantly, try and get some feedback as to people’s needs in this area. I’ve a pretty good idea I think but would love some input as to anything I’ve missed, should emphasize, or maybe just leave out all together.
