Late Sunday night I got news that my new book "The Developer's Edge" was available on Safari. This has been a project I've worked on for about six months - so a much quicker turnaround than "Solaris Application Programming".
The Developer's Edge is a collection of blog posts and articles. My contribution to the material is from either this blog, or the articles that I link from the left column. However, it also contains a lot of material that other people have written, and that I have found interesting. The original plan came out of some informal discussions with the docs folks around this time last year. We decided to try and capture some of the vast stream of material that goes out through the various sun.com websites (blogs.sun.com, developers.sun.com, wikis.sun.com etc.) - these are kind-of "Edge" publications - hence the title.
The book will also be available as print-on-demand. We're pushing the material through the channels as fast as we can, so the "launch" is asynchronous! I'll announce the print version when it happens.
