Coming into this book you should know the basics of using the command line (the terminal) and a code editor of your choice (I recommend Visual Studio Code).
It will help if you also know the basics of using Git, but that's not completely necessary because we'll only use the simple commands and I explain them as we use them in the book.
I'm writing this book because:
I'm not writing this book to earn a living. On my third book now I've realised it's very difficult to be a tech writer and make a living. So now I'm writing it for the enjoyment of writing and the satisfication of teaching.
But you know, if enough people buy it who knows? It might help fund my work on the next book.
Because I can. I've had a good experience on my first two traditionally published books, but it's the right time for me to try branching out on my own.
When the book is finished, I may still approach a traditional publisher for distribution. We'll see how things go.
The book covers development of the open source Photosphere application, a fullstack application with the following components:
The example application though is really only a delivery vehicle for learning the mindset, techniques and tools for fast development, with the main goal of producing reliable and valuable code.
See the published book outline for more details.
Then TypeScript, because it helps us keep our code working through repeated evolution and refactoring.
The book is designed for developers who can already read JS/TS and get the gist of what's going on. If you are coming into JS/TS from another language you should have no problem reading the code.
This is the period of time when you can buy the book early while it's still in development.
This gives you a chance to buy the book at a discount, support the author and be involved in the book's development.
Early access is set set at the discounted price of $20 AUD (aprrox $13 USD). That's a massive discount off the final price for getting onboard early in the book's development.
The retail price for ebooks of this nature is around $30 USD.
Yes, you will get new chapters as they are released and the entire ebook when it is finished.
It's hard to say exactly... but I'm aiming at 9 chapters. Although the end result might be 8 chapters or it might be 10.
New chapters will be released every 1-3 months. I'm working on this book in my spare time alongside multiple other projects.
Sometimes new chapters will come out quickly, othertimes not as quickly.
The book will be completed in 2024. It's difficult to say exactly, because it depends on the other commitments and obligations I have at any point in time.
At the moment the book is released in pdf and epub formats.
At some point in the future I hope to explore having a "print on demand" service.
So maybe. We'll see how it goes.
However, if this book is ever printed (no promises), I would like to offer a discount on the printed book to buyers of the ebook, but we'll have to see in the future if that's financially viable. Sorry, I don't yet know anything about how to have this book printed and how much it might cost.
I'm currently writing this book!
