I’ve been working for a while on seeing where we can improve RavenDB, and one of the things that I wanted to address is having an authoritative source to teach people about RavenDB. Not just documentation, those are very good for reference, but not so good to give you a guided tour and actually impart knowledge. That is what I wanted to do, to take the last five years or so of working on and with RavenDB and distill them.
The result is about a hundred pages or so (and likely to be three or four hundred pages). In other words, I slipped up and started churning out a book .
You can download the alpha version using the following link (which will be valid for the next two weeks). I want to emphasis that this is absolutely unedited, and there are likely to be error for zpelling in grammar*. Those will be fixed down the line, currently I’m mostly focused on getting the content out. Here is also the temporary cover.
Comments are welcome. And yes, this will be an actual book, in the end, which you can hold in your hand and hopefully beat someone over the head if they need to smarten up.
* The errors in that particular sentence were intentional.
