The first draft version of Paul Thurrott’s Guide tois now complete. This update to the full book document adds an introduction to the previously completed first draft versions of 17 chapters.
With the introductory material complete, I can now turn my attention to a thorough review of the book and make any necessary content and screenshot edits to prepare the book for its final 1.0 release. I should finish that sometime this week.
It’s pretty clear that I’ve not achieved most of my goals for this book, but I’ll provide a bit more in the way of reminiscing when the 1.0 version is ready. For now, I’m just happy to have sort-of completed it, though of course more work needs to be done. As noted previously, a 1.1 update I expect to provide in August will include coverage of Nokia’s HERE mapping and location apps, for example.
Feedback is always appreciated.
