Last month, an editor from Wrox book asked me if I was interested in writing a book on the new version of DotNetNuke which is still in beta. I really don't have the time to do a complete book (who does?) so I asked Darrell Hardy from Hardy Consulting, Tracy Wittenkeller from t-worx, and Microsoft MVP, Stan Schultes to help write some chapters.
We all have signed contracts, gone to the photographer for our cover picture, and are diving into the new version of DotNetNuke to write our chapters. Our first deadline was this week and we have three deadlines to go along with edits along the way before this book is complete. We have a core team member from DotNetNuke to answer any of our questions and it's been very challenging working with a beta copy.
I had an opportunity to work with all of the authors before. More recently, Darrell and Tracy spoke at the very successful DotNetNuke OpenForce event in Orlando, FL. Stan has much experience working with DotNetNuke and has a series of webcasts that he did along with Microsoft guru Russ Fustino. Tracy has his own DotNetNuke book out called DotNetNuke Websites Problem Design Solution (Programmer to Programmer).
All in all, I'm happy to be part of the team and look forward to a finished product in a couple of months.
