Today I released my first book for the Kindle platform: Distributed Version Control with Git.
Git is popular, especially in my main focus areas, Eclipse and Android.
Since a while I’m working in converting my tutorials into offline versions. The Git tutorial is the first one because it has no images. To my surprise it was still a huge amount of work. I hope the second book will be easier, as I learned a lot about epub, mobipocket, design, DocBook, XSLT transformations, Apache Ant, Inkscape and other tools.
You find the Git Book in all Amazon Stores:
Just to set the right expectations, the Distributed Version Control with Git has the same content related material as the online version. I hope that having this material also available for the Kindle is helpful. Is also allows you to read the online version before deciding if you want to get the book offline.
A big thanks goes to Alex Blewitt for writing the foreword and for providing feedback. I would especially thank Jennifer Nerlich de Vogel for their intensive spell checking exercises. Wolfgang Schell who is a power Kindle user gave important feedback for improving the structure of the book to optimize it for the Kindle.
I also got many suggestions or corrections from my readers and other people involved with Git and would I would like to express my deepest gratitude to their contribution including Robert Konigsberg, Elke Schaper, Appaholics, Michael Wiedmann, Joshy Cyriac, Peter Kahle, Jon Svede, Henning Hoefer, Matthias Sohn, Chris Aniszczyk, Stefan Lay, Edwin Kempin, Sasa Zivkov, David Carver.
Also a big thank you to Ralf Ebert who seeded the idea to publish on the Kindle platform.
Now I’m hoping for positve reviews at Amazon. 🙂
