Camel in Action 2nd edition goes into production phase

We are moving forward with the Camel in Action 2nd edition book. Manning just informed us that they have moved the book into production phase.

All chapters and appendixes except for Ch21 have now completed the copyedit and review cycle and have moved into the proofreading and indexing stages of production.

The proofing is done by a professional, whom has not seen the material before (new fresh set of eyes). Once the proofreading and indexing stages are complete, the final Word manuscript chapters will be sent on to the typesetter for layout, along with prepped graphics from the illustrator.

When we react this stage Jonathan and myself have chances to review PDFs of the formatted book pages, to ensure all the code examples are formatted correctly and so on.

At present time Jonathan and I are now working on the front matter, and writing our preface and what else. We are also reaching out to the foreword writers to ensure they hand in their material (Gregor Hohpe and James Strachan are yet to return their forewords).

And when Henryk Konsek has provided his updates, then chapter 21 can move along and also be part of the book.

So it starts to look really good and we can start to see the finish line. Its been a long run this time which has taken us almost double the time to complete the 2nd edition than what we did for the 1st edition. But that is possible expected, we are getting older, and the book is also almost twice the size.

To celebrate this, Manning has the book as deal of the day. This means you get 50% discount if you order the book on September 24th using the couple code: dotd092417au
