Open Content KDE Developer's Book

A book called KDE 2.0
Development
will be available online and in print starting in
early November. Until then you can find prerelease versions of a KParts
chapter
by David Faure and an abridged KDE API
reference
on Andamooka.
The book will be published under the Open Publication License.

KDE 2.0 Development was written by me and several people
from the KDE community:

  • Kurt Granroth
  • Cristian Tibirna
  • David Faure
  • Espen Sand
  • Stefan Westerfeld
  • Ralf Nolden
  • Daniel Marjama"ki
  • Charles Bar-Joseph
  • with a forward by Matthias Ettrich

We hope that this will help current KDE developers learn about the
new KDE 2.0 technologies/APIs as well as encourage new developers to
try working with KDE.

The entire book will be available for online and offline reading and
will be subject to section-by-section, moderated, community
annotation. This should help to keep the information current and
accurate while still keeping it organized.

Finally, translations of the book have begun:
Joelle Cornavin (French),
Pattara Kiatisevi (Thai), and André Goddard Rosa (Portuguese). Please contact me or one of them if you are interested in helping with translation.

It is being printed right now. It should
be shipped in a few weeks.

KParts chapter looks *great*! Keep up the good work.

Is there a Table of Contents yet? I'm interested if there is a kio_slave chapter. (Also just curious what else is covered, although I'll probably get it regardless).
