In his brilliant speech at this year's eZ Summer Conference in London, Tony Wood mentioned the eZ book production, and how much he would like to see it back.

Hi Geir,

Thank you for your kind words, it was a pleasure to recall such happy memories.

For the book, I think we can still remain digital. So if we produce a PDF book and then people can print if they want to.

I was wondering on the method of book creation. Could we use a collaborative process for this? I am thinking a shared Google Doc. as long as you can lay out the structure and moderate. The community should be able to write it over time.

If we get Google+ invites we can have evening "hang outs" where we hit a chapter together. (beer and pizza not included happy.gif Emoticon

As long as we get eZ to sign it somewhere it will be great.

Kind Regards,

I'm getting really curious to the content of those books. Was it something like a tutorial? Or maybe more?

Might be an idea for everyone checking this thread to have an old version scanned in pdf?

Regards Robin

Hi Robin,

They were mainly tutorial and reference books. I'll see if I can dig one up at the office. We used to give them out to clients for projects.

Of course there other great books too (WARNING Blatant selfish plug coming up blunk.gif Emoticon http://www.visionwt.com/Training/eZ-Publish-Books 

Forgive me!

Thanks Tony,

also found your screenshots on G+. Giving this some more thought, see if I can add to this great idea.

At Contactivity, as an early eZ Publish partner, we still have one or more old books/manuals laying around. Back at the office on Monday I will see what I can do to scan those if they have any (historical) added value.

Sorry for not giving you a decent reply earlier, Tony!

One reason being the speed at which things are happening here now with the "freeze" and certification phase coming on with our 4.6 release developments. This means that we now are more or less finished with the developments for the new release, and have a period in time where we stabilize the product before the release in November.

But back to the discussion..... I will need to take this proposal through the proper channels internally. I can only say that I like it. Given the resources eZ Systems have to put into this equation, a collaborative effort is really necessary and welcome. I will look into the methods and see what is most practical for us. And you, too, of course!

Best regards
