Two new chapters. One of them is the first!
It has been almost a month since I announced that I'm writing a book about EPiServer 7 development. Since then I've received a lot of helpful feedback and comments. Not unexpectedly the EPiServer development community has again proven its awesomeness to me!
While I've made two minor updates to the book since its initial release I'm today happy to announce a more major update. In the recently published version (#4) you'll find two brand new chapters. Somewhat ironically one of those is actually the first chapter, which up until now hasn't been done. And, actually it probably still isn't entirely done.
You see, the first chapter is something that I've been thinking about writing for years. It's not about EPiServer. Instead it's an attempt to take a step back and see how a CMS, such as EPiServer, could come to be. In the chapter we follow a site from its infancy with a single static HTML page and see how it evolves into a fairly respectable CMS based sites.
My hope is that this chapter will provide a gentle, understandable introduction for those new to CMS development in general and to EPIServer development in particular. I also hope that it may provide for some interesting reflection for senior EPiServer developers. However, with such ambitions it's hard to get it right the first time and I hope to improve it based on your feedback.
Anyway, if you've already bought the book, please grab the latest version and give me feedback. If you haven't yet bought the book, now may be a good time ;-)
