I'm currently having a quick read of the sample early-access chapter - looks good so far smilie

Noticed that there may be a typo in section 1.3.2 Inversion of Control vs. Dependency Injection (page 16):
"Early frameworks differed by the various forms of wiring that they proffered and promoted."

Should "proffered" be "preferred", or is it an obscure English word I'm not familiar with?

Either way, I'm sure the proof-readers/editors will correct any mistakes - just thought I'd chime in - and maybe even expand my vocabulary!

Re: Sample chapter - possible correction
Hi penfold

Thanks for the kind words. Here's what Google has to say on the subject:

Definitions of proffer on the Web:

suggestion: a proposal offered for acceptance or rejection; "it was a suggestion we couldn't refuse"
offer: present for acceptance or rejection; "She offered us all a cold drink"
