As Rael mentioned
, the book I've been working onAmazon Hacks
has gone from orange to yellow. Now I'll make the transition from intense daily (and nightly) writing/editing, to less frequent editing as it goes through production. It'll be a big shift, and I can finally look up from Word (now hitting save more frequently) to other applications. Hopefully it means I'll get back into the swing of posting here more often.
Even with the long hours lately it's been a very fun project to work on. I've met a lot of people doing cool stuff with Amazon's API
and Associates Program
, learned a lot about programming Web Services with tools and languages I don't normally work with (Perl, Python, and Mozilla especially), and had a chance to convey my excitement about what Amazon is building. And to top it all off, it was great working with Rael
, and I hope we can collaborate again in the future.
