SOA Patterns book - your opinion needed
It has been quite awhile since I added anything new to the book. I have my reasons (some would probably say excuses :) ) mainly that finding the energy and time to write is very hard with a wife, 3 kids and a startup.
Anyway, I've been talking with Manning lately trying to figure out what to do with this project. I was quite amazed to learn that 1000 or so of you purchased the MEAP edition even though it only contains 5 chapters and haven't been updated in a long time. (by the way I've also recently learned that book pirating sites are offering the book for download, but that's another story). Anyway, we're trying to decide what we want to do and this is where I'd love to hear some feedback from you
1. Do you think the book is still relevant today?
2. Do you think the book should be restarted form scratch to reflect recent
3. Do we need to cancel the book and end this fiasco ? or push it though to completion?
4. How valuable do you find the information in the book so far?
I am ready to put in time to to add enough patterns/anti-patterns to make the book releasable. but since I know it takes oodles of time I don't really have I really want to know I am not wasting my time
Please leave a comment/drop me an email if you have anything to say
Thanks (and thanks for continues patience so far)
