Open PowerShell Cookbook Beta Available Online

With the first draft of the Windows PowerShell Cookbook complete, we’re running an open beta through a cutting-edge platform called the Open Feedback Publishing System: http://powershell.labs.oreilly.com. In this system, we put the entire book online and let you read to your heart’s content.

Not only is the book available online, but you can also influence its future. The Open Feedback Publishing System lets you attach comments to any paragraph as though you would comment on a blog.

If you are interested in participating in the deeper technical review of the book, welcome aboard! If you have expertise in a specific chapter, please concentrate on that one first, making a comment on its first paragraph that you will be reviewing it. If you have more general expertise or interest, please first select a chapter that has not been reviewed, making a comment on the first paragraph that you will be reviewing it.

To start, visit http://powershell.labs.oreilly.com, create a new account, and start submitting feedback! The Open Feedback Publishing System overview page gives more information on how to contribute. Reviewers that provide significant feedback get a chance to see the impact of their comments on bookshelves worldwide, and will receive a complimentary copy of the book when it goes to press. We’ll be accepting comments until roughly the end of March.

Enjoy!
