The Developer's Edge is now available as hardcopy!
However, I suggest you wait until next week before ordering as the current cover art is not the final version (you can play spot the difference between the image on the left and the one on the Vervante website). I'll post when it gets fixed. Of course, you can order the "limited-edition" version if you want
I introduced the book in a previous post. I'll reproduce a bit more of the details in this post. The brief summary is:
The Developer's Edge: Selected Blog Posts and Articles focuses on articles in the following areas:
- Native language issues
- Performance and improving performance
- Specific features of the x86 and SPARC processors
- Tools that are available in the Solaris OS
The articles provide a broad overview on a topic, or an in-depth discussion. The texts should provide insights into new tools or new methods, or perhaps the opportunity to review a known domain in a new light.
I would love to hear feedback on this book, feel free to e-mail me directly, leave comments on amazon, or leave comments on this blog, or on the blogs of the other contributors.
