500 Lines or Less Release on July 12th, 2016

Michael DiBernardo - Wed 06 July 2016 -

We're happy to announce that the fourth AOSA volume "500 Lines or Less" will be released on Tuesday July 12th, 2016. As usual, the web version will be accessible for free on aosabook.org, while the PDF and paperback versions will be available for purchase from Lulu. Within a few weeks, the paperback will also be available on Amazon. All proceeds from sales will go to Amnesty International.

Since "500 Lines" is a very code-heavy book, we've decided not to officially produce an ePub or mobi version of this volume. We still haven't seen good examples of code-first books being produced in this format, and we feel that the freely-accessible web format is much more accessible on mobile. Those who can't live without an ePub can follow our instructions on how to build the book from source.

We're extremely grateful for all the support we've received from the hundreds of people who've reached out to us throughout the production of this book. Your reviews, issue reports, and direct contributions made this a much better volume than it would have been otherwise.

The production of 500Lines was greatly accelerated by the financial support of PagerDuty. Please join us in thanking them.

Finally, I'd like to extend a huge thanks to AOSA general editor Amy Brown, who singlehandedly copy-edited all of the chapters, designed the cover, and rounded out the the thousands of rough edges that I left behind. If you or your colleagues are ever looking for someone who knows how to produce books from start to finish, Amy is the person to talk to.

We're looking forward to reading along with you next Tuesday.
