I would love to have DEV as a partner/publisher on this. I'm committed to keeping it free for devs of limited means, but otherwise I'm flexible on terms.
I'm sure you've written a few things already that would be a great fit--no need to come up with something completely new. I'll go through your posts later and see what stands out, maybe you can do the same. If I can get a markdown doc, I'll handle the editing and layout from there.
I'm pretty certain we'd be pretty much 100% aligned in this vision. I wouldn't have mentioned it otherwise. I doubt there'd be much disagreement at all.
Absolutely no pressure if you change your mind. But we'll have a great platform to promote this and I think the simplest way to make our help work is if we had an explicitly defined partnership of sorts, something we can work out the details of if my cofounders are on board 😄
Count me in! You've got my email, talk to your cofounders and let's discuss this soon. I'm really excited about the possibilities.
Cool, we'll touch base early this work week.
In the meantime, good luck with it all. As this thread picks up steam I think we'll get a lot of initial momentum on pulling it together. 🙂
Maybe you can make every content an article here, and generate the book automatically from here.
So the book can evolve by just updating the articles in the web site.
Also the generated book can have some link (ebook version) or qrcode (hard copy) that references to the correspondent article in the website so that anybody can quickly provide feedback and comments.
It would be some kind of capability of the site to select posts and generate books that can serve any one.
Your book can be the first experience.
That is good because according to the review the website can contact possible authors and propose those compilations estimating the audience even before compiling the book.
I guess it would be the first feature of this website that no other similar website provides.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
