It’s hard to believe it’s been almost a year since we announced that a book on Mondrian was in the works. But were finally getting to the point where it feels like it’s almost finished. We are getting ready to go into the final series of chapter reviews (11 total).
It’s still going to be a few more months as we finish up the appendices and indexes and update based on reviews and then the production guys make it look nice and finished. We also know that by the time the book is published some pretty big things are likely to have happened in the Mondrian technology sphere, like 4.0 actually being released and Pentaho 5.0 hopefully being released as well. But that’s the drawback to technical books. (It gives me interesting stuff to blog about.)
On the whole, I’m very happy with what we’ve put together. We’ve managed to put a lot of information into the book. So much so that we’re now looking for ways to trim back to get within our allotted page count. This book will be a great one to give to anyone who wants to learn about Mondrian and doesn’t want to visit a whole bunch of different sites and blogs. I hope you enjoy it and find it useful.
