Hacking on LAMP
In 2012 I contributed to a since discontinued project on getting started with hacking on LAMP. It was a fun project, which I had hoped would be published and syndicated however it didn’t end up getting published. Unfortunately, the publisher holds the rights so I can’t publish another book like this for a little while.
The Next Wave of Technologies
In 2009 I contributed to a book by Phil Simons. According to Amazon (and so, I guess, the publishers) the book is “more of a management text than a technical guide” and is “designed to help your organisation better understand these exciting new technologies and their potential impact.”
As a contributing author on Open Source techologies and where they are headed I really enjoyed writing for Phil and I think it helped me to understand two things;
1. Writing 8500 words (a chapter) is hard, and
2. The effort required to write 24x that might explain why I haven’t finished my book yet.
I do suggest to any CTO or CIO out there to grab a copy of this book (no I don’t get any more money for refering people) becuase I think it really helps put into context alot of the technology out there that can be utilised by enterprises, such as enterprise search.
You can find it on Amazon here.
