Any plans of a hard copy or a Tablet/Epub version?

Not yet, but we do admit we are getting an overwhelming response for a hard copy. Currently the entire DotNetCurry team which includes our authors, are spending a lot of their personal time to make sure the quality is top class and the content is free. If we plan to do a hard copy, we cannot do it for free. That requires a different approach, a team and most of all, a distribution network. We are eager to do a hard copy in the future, and if we succeed, we just want to let you know that the electronic version will be freely available as long as we can manage it.

An Epub version is on the charts. It should happen sometime early next year. We will keep you posted via our Twitter or FaceBook account.

My favorite author is Craig and Subod. I have read every TFS and Software gardening article and have often guided my team to follow the practices illustrated in them. The Branching article stood above the rest. Well done Dotnetcurry team!
