10+ YEARS


Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

WebWork Books

What is it about WebWork that makes it so hard to write books about? I remember talking to Kris Thompson (a.k.a. the guy that quit blogging) last summer about WebWork in Action. At that time, it was "almost done". Over a year later and it's still "due out next month" (or is it done?). Almost as bad is Matthew Porter's WebWork Live, which was started late last year. I remember Matthew saying he expected to finish the initial version in March - and there's still not an ERP almost 10 months later.

Here's my guess: the Manning book has been done for months, but the publishing process takes months. As for Porter, my guess is he's too busy providing outstanding support at Contegix to work on the book. Any good conspiracy theories out there? Maybe WebWork has too many patterns that need to be documented? ;-)

My theory is that books only get written on time by consultants, 'cause they get kicked out the door after 40 hrs / week... Patrick and I work for product companies, and Matt's got his own company. That, plus I just had my 4th kid leaves the outside-work work time somewhat... limited.

They're too busy enhancing WebWork. I have to say, I really *love* WebWork. I knew it was going to be good when we first adopted it, but it has opened the door to designs and levels of reuse we hadn't even considered. Screw Struts and JSF. I wish they'd get WebWork in Action out and lighten my documentation/teaching load.
