colleagues and their books

So, sometimes working here is like working at an author collective.  The people I work with are really enjoyably smart and verbal, which makes it a great place to work.    There is of course George Schlossnagle’s awesome book, Advanced PHP.  If you haven’t read it, you should.  However today I want to draw your attention to two of my other co-workers’ magnum opuses (or is that opii?).

Amy Hoy is writing a couple different books for a couple different places on Rails and JavaScript.  To give you a sample of the cool stuff you can expect, you can read her great new article on Help Vampires.  If you read any software related mailing lists you will know this story. 

Theo Schlossnagle has been writing his book on Scalable Internet Architecture[s] for a good time now,  but apparently it’s almost finished, and you can read part of it online.  I’m looking forward to getting my hands on a copy.  Guess you can’t rush a good thing.

And yes, Mark, I promise to do some work on my own book this weekend.  :)
