Pike: An Introduction goes to Press

Created by hww3. Last updated by hww3, 6 years ago. Version #2.

After nearly three years, Pike: An Introduction is finally complete and off to the printers. For those of you not familiar with this little project of mine, Pike: An Introduction is is intended to be the definitive introduction to the Pike programming language. Weighing in at almost 300 pages, the book contains numerous examples which coincide with topics of discussion, as well as a chapter on the basics of several popular modules.

An interesting twist is that Martin (who's been helping with this project for a while now) and I are planning on setting aside proceeds from the sale of the book to fund Pike development and marketing projects. That means that, in addition to getting up to speed on your favorite programming language, you'll also be helping to advance and promote Pike.

I expect the book to be available at online outlets such as Amazon or Barnes and Noble in about a month. Until then, you can get your copy from Lulu, our printing vendor for USD 29.95. In addition to getting your book sooner, Lulu's commissions are lower, meaning that a larger percentage of your purchase price will be made available for supporting the Pike community.
