New book about Nginx

Hi everyone!

I would like to announce that a new book about nginx called ‘Nginx
Essentials’ that I was working on the last 6 months has been published
and is now available in E-stores worldwide, e.g.:

http://www.amazon.com/Nginx-Essentials-Valery-Kholodkov/dp/1785289535

This book is ideal for skilled web masters and site reliability
engineers who want to switch to Nginx or solidify their knowledge of
Nginx.

This will help you to learn how to set up, configure, and operate an
Nginx installation for day-to-day use, explore the vast features of
Nginx to manage it like a pro, and use them successfully to run your
website.

This book is an example-based guide to get the best out of Nginx and
reduce resource usage footprint.

The work on this book was a new interesting journey for me and I would
like to thank the Packt Publishing team for making everything happen, as
well as technical reviewers.

I hope this book will be usefull for you and you enjoy reading it!


Regards,
Valery K.

Is this for this book I (and many many other people, as they are used
to,
search about them) have been contacted by those Packt Publishing crooks
to
review, effectively asking me to work for free for them?

I am glad you make books, but skilled people usually find what they seek
for by themselves, not in a book dedicated to a specific technology.
Books
are more suitable for concepts and design, not for specificities and
particular implementations.
Write a book about making a website instead. Or don’t.

This mailing list is about discussing the (FOSS?) nginx product, not
about
self-promoting anonymous nginx experts and selling related stuff. Step
away.

That said, I wish you to make money, I am sorry for you having chosen to
work with Packt Publishing, and I wish people not to believe books from
Nonames about specific technologies are in any way useful.

The author of the book, Valery K. is a well known specialist.
He is also author of several nginx modules (his Upload module is among
the most popular 3rd-party modules). He has great knowledge of nginx
internals, and his blog http://www.nginxguts.com/ is one of the best
resources for beginners in nginx development. In 2008 he was a speaker
at large IT conference in Moscow about the nginx internals and modules
development.

When in 2010 I started developing my first module for nginx, I was
completely new to nginx sources. Valery’s article and responses to my
questions in mailing list were the most valuable for understanding how
nginx works.

So I’m sure that he wrote a good book about nginx, and I’m so sorry to
read such response to his announcement.

Hi,
this is not my business but this reply from “B.R.” has excited me. This
is example of disrespect and discourtesy to the another’s work. Please,
keep your fucking opinion to yourself.

[also intentionally top posted]

This is a mailing list for discussion of things that are helpful to
NGINX users. People that subscribe to this mailing list come from a
variety of educational backgrounds and experiences and all learn
differently. This means that things which may not be helpful to you may
well be helpful to others. This said, even when we disagree, it is
paramount that we are respectful and gracious given that email lacks any
sort of tone except the words we chose.

One of the things which is amazing about this community is that there is
such depth and diversity of experience that can be shared. Please
continue to be awesome to one another remember that many other may be
helped even when something seems irrelevant to you.

Now, in the spirit of respecting each other’s contributions and time,
let’s move on to more constructive topics and if there’s individual
feedback on how people contribute or communicate, let’s keep it direct
to the people involved and constructive rather than argumentative.

I do not care about his book, and I simply stated about a generality
about
that kind of books. Nothing judging the work behind it, thus not
disrespecting it. Learn to read.

Moreover users’ ML are made for users of a specific product, with
questions/trouble about it, thus not made for self-promotion. What ever,
except maybe coming from developers of the product, because they made it
possible.

If you are incapable of understanding or accepting others’ opinion, then
you should follow you own advice and keep your fucking opinion to
yourself.

Hi,

please clam down.
This mailing list has been created to discuss and announce anything
related to nginx.
This book certainly has relation to nginx so Valery did well when he
announced it here.

I am sorry to have bothered you all, that was meant to be a personal
answer
to ‘wishmaster [email protected]’… and I forgot to change the
recipient
address.

End of this topic on my side.

Spoken by the self-important, pompous ass “B.R.” who has now taken on
the title of “guardian of the mailing list”. Your referring to Valery
as “anonymous” is more than a bit ironic, since you choose to go by
initials that may or may not be real and he, like most of us, isn’t
afraid to use his real name. Pot, kettle, black. Put them in a sentence
for me. If you don’t understand English idiom that’s fine. Google it.

As long as you are in charge of the mailing list now, how about you STOP
top posting and using that horrible HTML email client that pisses off
the rest of us who actually DO understand mailing list etiquette?

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the nginx team for all of
their time and hard work that they’ve put into their product.

I, for one, completely understand that it’s impossible to pay the bills
with FOSS exclusively, and I welcome the occasional introduction to
other products and services provided by the team that maintains the
FOSS.

Having said that, the aforementioned book seems like an excellent
resource for nginx users, so this is not even an issue of promotion, but
strictly of good, useful information IMO. As a matter of fact, I just
ordered a copy of the book from Amazon.
