I have written half a book

LIke mentioned before I am trying to write a book and ... well, I may be actually making progress? At least the generated PDF is about 170 pages long, which means I have written a bunch in this past month.

I have finished the second of four planned parts, which means I have done about half of it. Since I expect the next two parts to be shorter, it's actually more than that.

The target audience are people who have finished the python tutorial but are not exactly programmers yet. They have the syntax more or less in their heads, but how do you turn that into an actual piece of code?

  • Part 1 is about "prototyping", the process of dumping an idea into rough code.
  • Part 2 is about polishing that rough code into ... not so rough code. Includes a gentle introduction to testing, for example.
  • Part 3 (to be written) is about things that are not code:
    • Git / Gitlab
    • Issues
    • Packaging
    • Setting up a website
    • CI
    • Lots more
  • Part 4 is still to be thought but basically it will cover implementing a large feature from the ground up.

I much appreciate comments about it.

PD: Si, va a haber una traducciń al castellano. O mas bien al argentino. Una vez que lo termine.
