The Book is Shipping, but Where is the Code?

Amazon has been shipping my new PeopleTools book for about a week now... but where is the source code? The honest truth? It is on my laptop. I am in the process of exporting the code from my test PeopleSoft instance. I am up to chapter 9. I am averaging about 2 chapters a night, so I expect to finish this week. Once I finish, I'll send it to Oracle Press and they will post it on their web site at http://www.oraclepressbooks.com/.

Update 15-July-2010: I sent the code to the publisher last night. It is now in their production department awaiting posting. I will update again when it is available.

Update: The code is now available. You can find information in this blog post.

Are you going to release it in a Kindle format? I really would like to buy it but technical books can get so heavy.

Jim Marion said...

:D Agreed. In the marketing flyer, the publisher said it would be published in electronic formats (plural). They publish other books in kindle format, so I would expect it to follow.

Jim,

That would be great if they got it for the kindle. I have the book but would also buy for the kindle.

Jim - I've only had a chance to peruse the intro and scan the chapters, but even that is excellent! You mention limits on conveying useful information in a presentation, and I've experienced that both as an audience member and in my own presentations. Glad you are able to share this great work in this format. I'm eager to get in and try some of the samples. Kudos!
