digitalmars.D.announce - New D book available for pre-order: D Web Development

Hi all!

Did you notice that development of LDC has been a bit slowly in 
the past? The reason is my book D Web Development, available now 
for pre-order: 
https://www.packtpub.com/web-development/d-web-development

The story behind the book:
Some time after the review of the "D Cookbook" I was asked by 
Packt Publishing if I would be interested in writing a book about 
web development with D. By that time I used vibe.d only as a test 
case for LDC :-) But then I took a closer look at the features of 
vibe.d and got enthusiastic about it. I agreed to write the book. 
Hopefully the book shows much fun it is to use D for web 
applications.

For me writing a book is an incredible experience. It's 
challenging because I am not a native English speaker. But I am 
having lot of fun in exploring all the details, creating examples 
and writing about it. I learned a lot in this process, including 
some more D programming. :-)

A big thank to all (known and unknown) reviewers, to Andrei for 
contributing the foreword and all others who helped in one way or 
the other.

Having finished about 60% of the chapters, the other 40% and the 
rework due to comments still absorb most of my time. Please be 
patient if fixing LDC bugs  takes some more time as usual.

Regards,
Kai

Nice! I had heard of the plans for this book, but didn't have time to actively contribute. But give me a ping if you need some additional review. I can't promise that I'll be fast, but I'll do my best!

Congrats! This exactly the sort of book I think D could really use right now. D/vibe is fantastic for web, but outside of the vibe.d site there isn't enough written about it.

Hi Kai. As I have all the books/hardcopies from http://wiki.dlang.org/Books, I had to pre-order your coming book as well... and did so just now. It's not like I'm a Dlang programmer and I guess I'll never do real world "D [Web] Development", but buying the D books is my way of supporting Dlang and especially those of this great community who spend their valuable time for the hardest part of programming/development... which is writing usable documentation and/or books! From now on, I'm waiting for my Christmas 2015 gift ;) Thanks for doing this! Btw., Ali: I'm would still love to buy the best ever Dlang book/documentation/reference, which for me is your (and/or the Turkish Dlang communities) "Programming in D" bible! Well, if you could make it my birthday present (end of May ;) )... Regards notna

Packt seem to have caught some sort of wave at the moment with D related books. Though from my experience of correspondence with then they seem to work a bit backwards. Hope you enjoyed writing. Iain

Many publishers want to disincentivize ebook sales while artificially pushing up print sales, that's probably why. Part of it is that they already have money invested in printing presses and the like, so they don't want that investment demolished by everyone buying ebooks. Another piece is that they may feel, rightly or wrongly, that they don't have much to contribute to ebook sales, so they use such weird pricing to try and suppress pure ebook sales alone, because someday they will go out of business if they just sell ebooks. Strictly speaking, it is irrational, or at the very least too skewed towards dying technology and business models. But then people do dumb things all the time, especially those whose business is heading for obsolescence. :)

 Having finished about 60% of the chapters, the other 40% and the rework
 due to comments still absorb most of my time. Please be patient if fixing
 LDC bugs  takes some more time as usual.

 Any chance I could be added to the reviewers for this book?
 English is my primary language and I use vibe.d about 25 work 
 hours a week.

 Hi all!

 Did you notice that development of LDC has been a bit slowly 
 in the past? The reason is my book D Web Development, 
 available now for pre-order: 
 https://www.packtpub.com/web-development/d-web-development

 The story behind the book:
 Some time after the review of the "D Cookbook" I was asked by 
 Packt
 Publishing if I would be interested in writing a book about 
 web development
 with D. By that time I used vibe.d only as a test case for LDC 
 :-) But then
 I took a closer look at the features of vibe.d and got 
 enthusiastic about
 it. I agreed to write the book. Hopefully the book shows much 
 fun it is to
 use D for web applications.

 For me writing a book is an incredible experience. It's 
 challenging because I am not a native English speaker. But I 
 am having lot of fun in exploring all the details, creating 
 examples and writing about it. I learned a lot in this 
 process, including some more D programming. :-)

 A big thank to all (known and unknown) reviewers, to Andrei 
 for contributing the foreword and all others who helped in one 
 way or the other.

 Having finished about 60% of the chapters, the other 40% and 
 the rework due to comments still absorb most of my time. 
 Please be patient if fixing LDC bugs  takes some more time as 
 usual.
