That is exactly what Andrew Edwards used to want to do. I
haven't seen him on the forums lately though.
Yeah, he and I had a some discussions about that starting back at
DConf 2013. The last I talked to him about it was shortly after I
started working on the book. I promised him I'd contribute a
tutorial series on a simple text-based game. Haven't heard from
him since then.

Will you have time to join us?
If you would like to present something, perhaps as a warm-up
for your DConf talk ;), just let me know and I will add you to
I wish I could! I'm currently scheduled to fly out of Korea on
the 18th, though I may have to push it back a few days (can't
miss Christmas -- haven't been home for it since '93). And even
if I could fly out a couple days earlier, I wouldn't. The new
Star Wars opens in Korea on the 17th and I've already got my
reservations! Korean cinemas are much more civilized than those
in the States -- assigned seats and crowds that aren't screaming
and shouting. The last night of Dconf 2013 I saw Iron Man 3 in a
crowded cinema in Mountain View and swore I'd never do it again.
There's no way I'm going to even bother trying to watch Star Wars
in the States. All these years in Korea have got me spoiled.
At the least, I want my book signed! :)
Ditto! We'll have to swap copies in Berlin :)
