Survey: Programming LiveCode for the Real Beginner

Post by Mark » Tue Jun 04, 2013 10:40 pm

Hi,

Now that I can leave the craziness of book publishing and order processing slowly behind me, it is time to make a few more announcements.

We will produce a second print of the book, but it will take a while to figure out all our options. We need to consider whether to edit the text of the book, how to change our logistics and if the format is still the right choice. It is still possible to order the book, but it will take at least 6 weeks to ship.

We now have an official Q&A website. On this website, you will also find a FAQ and we are working on a list of errata. You can find the FAQ at http://qery.us/3hz and you can also add your own questions. At http://livecodebeginner.economy-x-talk.com you will find a portal to the Q&A and other important websites.

To improve our services to you and to help us decide whether to print a second edition and in which format, we would like to ask you to go to http://qery.us/3i0 and fill out the survey. If you haven't received the book yet, you can fill it out now and do it again when you get the book or you can wait until you receive it. Do as you like.

Your participation in the survey is essential, because your answers will be significant to our business decisions. If you have any friends who might be interested, please send them a copy of this e-mail and ask them to do the survey too. Your help is highly appreciated!

Kind regards,

Mark

I have tried to submit your Survey - BUT it keeps telling me I didn't answer all the questions - even though I have.

A Bug in your Survey Form Checking???

Hi Ralph,

It should show a simple code, e.g. "Error: q02". Could you report this code, please?

Kind regards,

Mark

Hmmm... I forgot the Error Code but It worked when I tried it again.

Looking forward to seeing the Survey Results and your newsletters.

Hi everyone,

I'm preparing the second edition of my book. Now I need to decide how many books to print and how to improve logistics, among other things.
To help me with these decisions, please fill out the survey. We need another 50 respondents to get reliable results.

Thanks,
