To write, and to write what.

Some of you may know I have written about 30% of a book, called "Python No Muerde", available at http://nomuerde.netmanagers.com.ar (in spanish only).That book has stagnated for a long time.

On the other hand, I wrote a very popular series of posts, called PyQt by Example, which has (you guessed it) stagnated for a long time.

The main problem with the book was that I tried to cover way too much ground. When complete, it would be a 500 page book, and that would involve writing half a dozen example apps, some of them in areas I am no expert.

The main problem with the post series is that the example is lame (a TODO app!) and expanding it is boring.

¡So, what better way to fix both things at once, than to merge them!

I will leave Python No Muerde as it is, and will do a new book, called PyQt No Muerde. It will keep the tone and language of Python No Muerde, and will even share some chapters, but will focus on developing a PyQt app or two, instead of the much more ambitious goals of Python No Muerde. It will be about 200 pages.

I have acquired permission from my superiors (my wife) to work on this project a couple of hours a day, in the early morning. So, it may move forward, or it may not. This is, as usual, an experiment, not a promise.
