The developer evangelism handbook is now available in print from

Monday, November 9th, 2009

When I released the developer evangelism handbook it was quite a success but a lot of people asked for a print version. I’ve asked a few publishers if they are interested but the common consensus was either “too short” or “too niche”. I’d be happy to prove them wrong so I used for publishing the book myself. So if you are not a fan of the free online version, go over there and get your copy.

The Developer Evangelism Handbook is now available on by  you.

Alright, after writing on it for four evenings and on one flight in between watching Watchmen and “The Boat that rocked” I am proud to present you:

The handbook explains several things:

  • What developer evangelism is
  • What makes a good developer evangelist
  • How to write for the web
  • How to use social media and the web to promote content
  • How to deliver great presentations
  • How to deal with criticism of your company and what to do with the competition
  • How to write easy to understand and useful code examples

The handbook is Creative Commons and free to use. I am working on getting a printed version out, too.

Here are shortcuts to the chapters:
