Our new book, PowerShell Scripting in a Month of Lunches, is now available as part of the Manning Early Access Program. This is the spiritual successor to Learn PowerShell Toolmaking in a Month of Lunches (it’s a complete rewrite versus a second edition), and is the “sequel” to Learn PowerShell in a Month of Lunches, and the “prequel” to The PowerShell Scripting and Toolmaking Book. The relationship between the books is explained here.
Now’s a great time to buy the MEAP, if you’re interested. The entire book is “in,” but we’re really interested in feedback – which you can drop as a comment right here, if you want – because we have some additional ideas for “completing” the book. So it’s a great opportunity to make a substantive impact on the final book. The chapter count is finalized; what’s on the table, potentially, are expanded examples, more explanations, and so on. We’ve potentially got around 60 pages we could add to the book – but we want to add it in the right place, not just gratuitously fill the wrong spots.
You’ve got until roughly the end of July to give us ideas (the book is on a fast track), at which point we’ll be turning the entire thing over to Manning for final publication.
Looking forward to your feedback!
