|The original OpenShift Primer e-book
first published in 2012.
In 2012 I wrote a small introduction to OpenShift based on the free online version which is now known as OpenShift Online v2. In 2013 I started on a follow up revision that was published in 2014 and has been made available by a publisher known as DeveloperPress.
This was fun to bring some of the basics to get you started on my favorite Platform as a Service (PaaS) and it was my first experience writing for a publisher that delved only into e-books. This one was made available around the world for $3.99 in e-formats.
The book is becoming a bit outdated and I was pondering my next writing project when I received this letter from the publisher:
“We would like to inform you that developer.press is ceasing its operations, effective immediately. This also includes the removal of all titles published by developer.press from all distribution platforms, as well as all planned publication projects under the umbrella of developer.press.
We apologize for any inconvenience this news may have caused and we would like to thank you for your immense support and for the fruitful collaboration. You will regain all rights concerning your books published at developer.press with immediate effect. You are therefore allowed to use and publish your texts where and however you want.”
As of today I am putting this book out there for anyone and everyone to freely download. When we share, we are stronger.
