adventures in making stuff with Daniel Higginbotham

Clojure for the Brave and True Is Off to the Printers!

18 August 2015

Today, my fantastic production editor at No Starch reached out and pressed the basketball-sized "RELEASE IT!" button at No Starch headquarters, encasing Clojure for the Brave and True cucumber-infused amber and sending it on its way to the bookeries of Melrose Park, Illinois.

At least, I'm pretty sure that's what happend. Either way, the book is off to the printers! It's done! After two years of working on it, it's actually done! Aaaaaah! It'll be available at the beginning of September, and you can preorder it from No Starch (free ebook included with print book) or Amazon. (Leanpubbers, you'll be getting the fully-updated ebook by the time the book is published.)

The main work (writing a book) is done, but there's actually still more stuff to do. I need to finish rebuilding the website to include all the updated content and to make it easier to add more content. What?!, you ask, more content?! Yes indeedy! The book may be finished, but there's still so much more to write about! Expect a Sidequests series by the end of the year.

Thanks for all the pull requests, emails, comments, and other feedback. And I don't want to spoil the Acknowledgements section, but I want to give my Special Thanks to Jess Higginbotham, Alan Dipert, Bridget Hillyer, Joe Jackson, Pat Shaughnessy, Alex Rothenberg, Thomas Newton, Jalil Fanaian, Chris Parker, Christian Lilley, and Mark Daggett.

I hope you're having a great day. I am! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go rediscover what it feels like to have free time.
