Book project follow up
I'm still getting e-mail about the book I started to write and posted chapters for. Now that ScottGu has formally announced the progress on v2 of ASP.NET MVC, hopefully it's more obvious now why I put off the project. As I said previously, I had to prioritize...
ASP.NET MVC book: Chapter 1: Plumbing
ASP.NET MVC: From Webforms to MVC by Jeff Putz The following is a barely-edited draft from the forthcoming book that will explore Microsoft’s ASP.NET MVC framework from the view of a traditional Webforms developer. This chapter goes over the basic plumbing...
ASP.NET MVC: From Webforms to MVC - Introduction
This is the introduction for the book I've decided to write. I'm not at all sure how it will see paper yet, and I'm OK with that. I've been looking into self-publishing or on-demand publishing and I'm fairly convinced that it's a real option. I'm still...

Why you should (or shouldn't) write a programming book
I still get questions about writing a programming book, two years after Maximizing ASP.NET came out. I figure maybe it's time to write a blog post on it so I can easily field such questions with a little more substance. Instead of giving advice on whether...
Staggering self-publishing numbers
37singals posted some numbers on their self-published book today. I don't think I need to really add anything, except to say you should look at the numbers versus their dead tree publication. And I understand that the company is popular now, but still...
