Writing a book is a daunting task. It bear resemblance with the process of producing a software system. You need get started and you need to keep going. Describing the MDriven strategies and the ideas associated with Model driven development with the MDriven technology is also hard due to the fact that the ideas shape, become clearer and evolve over time.
Looking back at my progress I have come to the conclusion that I need to abandon the traditional waterfall strategy of book producing and delivery and instead adopt the agile software strategies with frequent releases of improved current state.
This of course does not come without risks; can we trust the contents if it is not finished/done/published. But it comes with even greater rewards; test and debug the book – so that it becomes solid and correct over time.
Hopefully some of you may give me pointers in what direction to deepen the descriptions of concepts.
So will this book project ever finish? Who knows – and really as long as the result can be consumed in its current state – who cares?
It is like MDriven itself – will it ever finish? I hope not because that would be the end of progress. But still – MDriven has matured and the body of the framework and strategies are clear to me and will not likely ever change. The book will be used to convey the stable core.
