I've decided to write a short blog-type post every week here on this forum. These posts are exclusive to this forum, and they will primarily be about the writing of the book.

Happy New Year 2015!

Over the past holiday week I've been putting together Chapter 19. There is one more chapter to write after that. Though the work isn't finished yet (revisions, always revisions), I am beginning to feel lighter, now that I can see the finish line. I'm almost there.

I plan to keep writing these entries until the book enters production, which is actually sometime in February or March.

I still learn interesting Git bits. For example, just this week, I learned you can obtain the key paths from which Git obtains its executables and manual pages, by typing:

git --exec-path

git --man-path

Esoteric, to be sure, but helpful when debugging.

Thank You everyone for reading!
