Hello Ionic community! I’m Jeremy and I wanted to introduce myself and let you know about the Ionic in Action book I’m writing for you to get up and running building amazing mobile apps. I’m excited about the book so far and interested in getting your input and feedback. You can get the first chapter for free just to see what its like, though the first chapter is primarily intended to make sure you know what Ionic and the other related tools are capable of doing for you. You can also follow along with my Ionic in Action blog to see updates and I’ll also be posting tips and tutorials.
I have written nearly half of the book so far, and the book is available as an early access version where you can read along as new chapters are written. The best part, if you have any ideas, suggestions, problems, you can reach out to me on the author forums and I’ll be there to follow up with you. I’m very eager to get input and feedback on what you need to know to be effective Ionic developers. If you get the early access book, please jump on the author forums for Manning and let me know how it is.
The table of contents is below, and it has 3 primary sections. The titles may change over time, but it gives you a sense of each chapter’s content. The goal is to make sure you have all of the tools you need to build a hybrid mobile app from start to app stores.
Thanks to the Ionic team for their help and assistance with the writing. They are an extraordinary team and great people. I can’t wait to see what all of you can create with Ionic!
