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.

In BLOG #26, I showed a few graphs of how the writing was going.

Today, with the production editors saying "we're going to press", here's a graph of all the commits to my book's Git repository (courtesy of my local installation of GitLab).

It's fascinating to see the activity spikes between the start of the project, all the way through April 2015. The commits then start to wane until this month, August 2015. To be fair, a lot of the activity was done outside of Git. All of the corrections and the reviews were done on files not managed in Git, so the only commits are those from my notes.

The book indeed goes to press, probably by early September. The end is near!

Thanks, everyone, for reading!
