Would be cool to have it as a .mobi and .epub
The final version of the book will be on .pdf, .mobi, and .epub. But I’ll try to provide the 3 file formats for the following chapters as well.
The intro sounds good, although much of what is already covered in other books - will your book be about something specific? If you need inspiration, check out this thread:
My goal for this book is to teach the basic concepts of Elixir. I know there’s a lot of books for beginners, but as I’m not an experienced writer, I’ve decided to start with a project that I know I can finish.
But I’m trying to use a different approach. The book is more focused on people who already know how to program. However, the biggest difference will be its length. I’m limiting myself to 100 pages, so I can focus on what it’s really important. That’s why the book is called 100 Pages of Elixir. And it’s open source, so anyone will be able to read for free on GitHub, and even build it in different file formats.
I’m also planning to write other books after this. They’ll cover more advanced aspects of Elixir, and the thread you’ve just linked will be really helpful for them.
But don’t get me wrong, I get your point, and I completely agree with it. The community needs more advanced books. But as this is my first book, I don’t feel comfortable enough to write about advanced topics.
