Blogging on how content should be managed

Dynamic Web Development with Seaside

The release of Dynamic Web Development with Seaside was just announced. The book talks about Seaside, the web framework behind Pier. Furthermore, the book is displayed using a very cool Pier plugin, written by Lukas.

Here is the original announcement:

After the first announcement at ESUG 2009, we are proud to present the release of the free online book

Dynamic Web Development with Seaside

The book is written in the Pier content management system using the Pier book publishing engine. This allows us to collaboratively edit the contents and generate different output formats automatically. We will soon offer a PDF and a printed version, but first we have to iron out some of the remaining issues.

Over the past years the book got reviewed and revised several times. We want to thank all the persons who helped us: Torsten Bergmann, Damien Cassou, Tom Krisch, Philippe Marshall, Ruben Schempp, Roger Whitney, Julian Fitzell, and Michael Davies carefully reviewed the book and provided valuable feedback. Martin J. Laubach for his Sudoku code. Ramon Leon for letting us using his blog ideas and SandStoneDB, Chris Muller for Magma. Jeff Dorst provided generous financial support for supporting student text reading. Markus Gaelli for brainstorming on the book title. Samuel Morello for designing the cover.

Michael Davies is currently helping us getting things ready for print. And you can help us too by writing down your findings at the bottom of each page. Also, if you want to contribute a missing chapter or support the translation of the book please get in touch with us.

We wish to thank the European Smalltalk User Group (ESUG) and inceptive.be for sponsoring this book. We are looking for additional sponsors. If you are interested, please contact us. If you are a publisher and interested in publishing this material, please let us know.

Please distribute this message widely.

Cheers, Stef & Lukas & David & Rick
