Update #3

The $5k stretch goal has been passed! Here's the next one...

Comment

I'm thrilled to announce that we have passed the $5,000 stretch goal! The book will not only have a beautiful cover, but also a plethora of illustrations to supplement the content throughout. The expenses related to designing and publishing a highly polished book are covered. Thanks to you, the book will be more than just words on a page; it will be a compelling -- and fun -- reading experience!

What's next for the goals? We are now half-way through the funding period and we are just getting started. The next goal is a big one.

If this Kickstarter raises $10,000, the book will be freely available online as good old HTML.

The model that I'll follow for this will probably be something like Daniel Shiffman's The Nature of Code. This also means that the book will be available on GitHub for pull requests and issue tracking! Remember though, this is only if we are able to raise $10,000. We're already more than half-way there!

To all of the amazing (300 so far!) backers who have pledged their support, I'd like to encourage you to increase your pledge to push the project closer to this new goal. A modest increase of $10 is enough to put efficiency backers into the supporter category, and get you a signed cover postcard to reward your support. If you're really excited about opening up this book, $25 more gets you a print copy for your library (or restroom reading basket)!

I'm immensely grateful to every backer, from the $1 pledges to the $500 hero (thanks again Balanced!). I can't wait to see more backers filling out the reward tiers.

Thank you all!

P.S. I had a great call with Flask-Admin creator Serge Koval, but Google Hangouts didn't record any of it. Serge was awesome enough to do a write-up about what we talked about (Python and real-time web development) on his blog: http://mrjoes.github.io/2013/06/21/python-realtime.html
