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 outstanding authors, are spending a lot of their personal time to make sure the quality is top class, and the content is useful and free.

If we plan to do a hard copy or spend time to make it compatible with a kindle/ipad etc, we cannot do it for free.

All of this 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 always be free.

An Epub version is on the charts. It should happen sometime early next year if we get enough sponsors.

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!
