This week I'm clearing issues and fixing mistakes of my current brain child.
It's a book.
The second one.
It's a book on application architecture.
During the review process that I spawned last week, I noticed the following:
- Reviewers are strict, which I like a lot
- Most of them focus on layout, which is fine and helps a lot
- Chapter flow seems to be my weakness
- Discovering technical issues requires a lot of time, not everybody has enough cycles to go through it
- A lot of people seem to think the draft is ready for print, which is actually not the case. By far.
- Everybody wants a special chapter on the must-have technology and/or methodology
I value all opinions and learn a lot from them. Kudos go to all of you, you know who you are.
The book is called: Architecture of Modern .NET Applications - Design Patterns (Arhitektura sodobnih aplikacij .NET - Načrtovalski vzorci)
It's supposted to be available by the end of January 2005. Published by Microsoft Slovenia and distributed to all Slovenian architects and lead developers.
If somebody would like a copy of final cleartext, please send me an email. And yes, it's NOT written in English.
