I’ve been working on the Quartz.Net eBook and I have put together an outline of what the contents will be once it is finished. I thought I would share the table of contents with you and I would appreciate any comments you might have. I’m especially interested in getting feedback regarding which sections are more interesting and important for you. I’d also like to know if there are any sections that are of absolutely no value so that I can cut them out.
Please share your thoughts with me below in the comments or feel free to send me an email.
