I guess you won't be interested yourselves by the book but I bet your open mind can understand a bunch of people can be.
Answering in the text at the first Rob.In what way is the book different from existing books?
I always think that unique thought concept was dangerous. One and only one book per topic, one and only one idea per project etc
Because we are all unique (even if you don't think that about yourself, you are!) PACKT PUBLISHING thought about me as a nice way to introduce and develop great skills and my own ideas about interaction design and art in this book.
And yes, you'll have the choice. This is a new proposition, a new approach by one guy
Don't try to think it is a bad idea before to know the guy, to see the book, to check what people want.
You can read a nice & cool interview made by Arduino Blogs here:http://arduino.cc/blog/2012/08/31/digital-artist-julien-bayle-interviewCan you post the table of contents?
I will very soon. PACKT has some rules about that.
Please be patient and subscribe to the newsletter to be informed by me (not packt)
I still didn't send any news from that preferring to keep the mailing list quiet and useful.What is the level of your audience?
If you already wrote a book, you know that you have to know about your audience a bit before to write it, yes.
People who don't know C/C++ can read the book and code stuff at the end.
It is a big book, taking you from te beginning to medium advanced stuff like gLCD, VGA modules use, but also making your Arduino a MIDI responsive synth producing 8bit sounds and reading PCM. We also see how to create our own small library.
I introduce and play with Processing and Max6 in the book in order to open mind to very used frameworks too. I quote a lot of open libraries like MOZZI
, and I can say I'm so happy because these library authors/devs are really happy to be quoted in that book.Languages?
My reviewers are so good :p
I'm french and can do that in french and italian too but my editor would take care of translations for me.What will be the price?
Check PACKT PUBLISHING other books for that.
It will exist as ebook too, of course.Why do you have a forum around the book? Arduino.cc is alive and kicking !
This was more intend for starting the small website around it.
When you'll read the book, you'll see how much I'm forwarding for "further ideas and ressources" to this forum here.
I'm almost sure the forum there won't be used but I'm proposing it.
Propositions are never bad, aren't they?
Answering to the other Rob about the funny notice about photographies
Don't worry, I'm using some nice pictures for the book and especially I'm using intensively (and teach how to use) FRITZING. Guys there at FRITZING seem very happy to be quoted too, btw.
Thanks a lot for your ideas & answers here Rob & Rob
