If you haven’t found it, my The DSC Book project is coming along nicely. This is an “agile” book, meaning I’m publishing it as I write it. Whenever I make a major update, you get an email notification and can go download the new version at no extra charge. It’s available in PDF, MOBI, and EPUB, as well as in the LeanPub app. Everything’s DRM-free, to make it as easy as possible for you to read it wherever you want.

You should know that each purchase actually helps push the book forward toward completion, since for each purchase I set aside 4 hours to work on nothing but the book. And while I do have an outline (it’s in the Table of Contents, which you can see in the freely available sample download), I plan to continue updating and evolving this book over time. So for a one-time purchase, you basically get a “forever” book!

It’ll pay to support this project early on. As I noted, purchases help me dedicate time to the project (my family is more generous with my weekends when the bills are being paid). In addition, the price of the book will rise over time as it nears completion. So you’re getting an Early Bird bonus by being on the “ground floor.”

The project is an outgrowth of the original “DSC Book” I published for free at PowerShell.org. This is a complete rewrite, and I decided to go commercial so that I’d have the financial support needed to grow and maintain this thing over the long-haul.

If you haven’t done so, stop by and check it out, and let me know what you think.

    Hey Don,
    Just finished reading what you written so far. Really good and looking forward to the next installment. The ‘cattle’ approach surprised me. I will have to study on that some more. If we see a word or sentence that might not be clear should we report it and where?

    Thanks again for all your hard work on your books. I have them all from Manning.

      Gregg, you can drop me an email, or you can use LeanPub’s “contact the author” option, which will send me an email.

    Don… would you also be including steps to integrate with Chef? It will really be useful for a huge community.

      As I don’t really know Chef, I won’t be able to.
