01:49 Topic for #perl6book is now master plan: https://gist.github.com/moritz/2930131695511e6b5ec63d90e4ce9e7b logs: https://irclog.perlgeek.de/perl6book/today
08:33 moritz iBakeCake: I've added your SSH key
08:39 moritz iBakeCake: and fwiw I also don't think we should introduce the topics in the order discussed in the outline
08:39 moritz iBakeCake: rather we should start with a basic example, and explain the things used in the example
08:40 moritz and then go to a slightly more advanced example, and explain all the stuff needed for that, and so on
08:46 moritz IME, coming up with good examples is the real challenge
08:47 moritz ideally they do somthing useful, are rather compact, and don't introduce too many new concepts
08:48 moritz ... and all without interacting too much with the outside world, because that tends to be a bit non-deterministic, which makes it hard for the reader to follow
08:53 moritz so, any ideas for examples are very welcome

11:43 Zoffix Sorry for doing this after offering to be a co-editor (and making you add keys), but I'm pulling out. I think it's best to do it now, than half-way in the middle of the project. As I've said before, I was thinking of a book even earlier than your announcement. Yesterday, I wrote down a detailed plan for what I envison that book to be and I feel strongly about the content structure and the creative direction. I've decided that my staying on and
11:43 Zoffix bikeshedding this and trying to convince people why I want it my way would be wasted effort and I'm best to do my book on my own. Sorry for wasting your time; please revoke my keys. Best of luck in your endeavour.

12:54 moritz DrForr: are you looking for a co-author for Learning Perl 6? :-)
12:54 moritz I don't fancy writing a book alone right now
14:13 DrForr I don't blame you. Privmsg? (already pinged you)
