For those of you interested in such things, here’s an update on my forthcoming books for 2015-2016 (spoiler alert: they’re all revisions of existing books).
First up is the second edition of “The Yii Book” (self-published), for version 2 of the framework. I’m not providing an estimate of when that’ll be completed, but I’m making OK progress so far. I currently plan to release the book in three updates of about 8 chapters each.
Third and fourth, in 2016, I’ll be writing the fifth editions of “PHP for the Web: Visual QuickStart Guide” and “PHP and MySQL for Dynamic Web Sites: Visual QuickPro Guide“. I don’t know in which order I’ll be doing these, but both should be published in 2016. Both will be updated for PHP 7.
I continue to concurrently work 30-35 hours/week for Stripe (and don’t expect that to change), so I don’t imagine I’ll do much of anything else for the next two years. And then I’m never writing another book again. I’m kidding, but I’m going to need a serious break from writing by the end of 2016.
As always, thanks to everyone for your interest in what I say (er, write) and do! And, especially for reading my books!
