I hate to disappoint you but my goal for the book is not for me to write
about things I have experience with in a production environment. My goal
is to clearly explain topics that may otherwise look obscure.
Device drivers are one such topic.
I don't aim to pass myself off as an expert. I do aim for deep and
coverage of every topic that I write about. This is the reason I ask
Does this make me qualified or unqualified to write the book? I don't
You will be the judge once the book is 2/3 finished and enters the Prags
beta book program.
Do you think you are more qualified to write an Erlang book than I am?
You may well be. Please feel free to write another Erlang book,
we don't have enough of them at the moment!
