Community chapter


#1

Hi

I would like to put a “real-world” IronRuby chapter in my book that is
created by people from the community. People that are interested in
writing
a short piece (2-5 pages in word) on how IronRuby made their live easier
because of …

Michael has a thing about ActiveDirectory
Daniele also has a topic.

I was thinking Ben???

if anybody else is interested just let me know and I’ll give you access
to
the repository in which we stick all our stuff around that.
2 pages would be an average blog post :slight_smile:

Also I took over the rubydoes.net website. If somebody wants to blog
there
=> email me :slight_smile:

Cheers
Ivan

Hi Robert,

Sorry for waiting this long to reply to your email. Before it was pretty
far
in the future but now my deadline is approaching :).

Anyway I’d be most interested to read and hear about your experiences
surrounding your project. The work you’ve been doing definitely sounds
pretty interesting from our past conversations.

So I set a deadline for the community stuff in the last week of April
because I will have to put it in the book and my publisher wants me to
write
it to keep the tone at a consistent level. I will give everybody credit
and
include a short description of who submitted what and who they are. I
will
also give credit at the beginning of your contribution and at the end so
that it is really clear that I only copied what you gave me.

Would that be doable for you by the end of April?


Met vriendelijke groeten - Best regards - Salutations

Another one I’d like to convince to write a short essay is Orion
Edwards.
I believe we’ve actually met once or twice when I was living in
Wellington
but can’t be sure, my memory is like swiss cheese.

I’m discussing with the publisher on how we can make this work for them
too
and next week I’ll contact all of you off list to discuss this further.

If there are other people listening that have done something cool please
tell me about it. I firmly believe in the fact that enthusiasm and
success
stories are the best way to spreading something.
