It’s been 4 solid weeks of writing text and running tests. Always a scramble at the end, and there’s always more that you can think of writing.
The MQ V7.1 and V7.5 book from which the new Primer was extracted has now completed its journey through graphics design and editing and is available here in pdf, epub and (in a few days) hardcopy. Thanks to those people who provided comments on the draft.
A couple of the other authors wrote about their experiences in this blog post.
I didn’t know this video had gone live, and found it by chance while looking for something else.
I think it was the first time I’d done anything long direct to camera, and that shows. And I’m not really that John Boehner/Dale Winton (trying to cover different country reference points) colour. But it was a fun thing to do one afternoon while we were writing the book last year. Hopefully the video release means that the final edited version of the redbook is closer too.
The MQ Primer discussed here and here has completed its journey through the editing and production process, and is now available at http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/redpieces/abstracts/redp0021.html
