The Book of OpenLayers3
I don’t remember when I start writing, I think the 2014 christmas, but what I know for sure is these months were a really busy months. Combine a full time job as a software engineering with the task of writing a book about a new technology (plus the fact I have always some other little projects in hands) is hard. Literally translating an spanish sentence Nobody said it was going to be simple.

I tried to organise the book chapters in a natural order to understand the new architecture. Each chapter has a first section where all the theory is explained and a second one, based on examples, where you can see those concepts in action.
Next is the table of contents.
- The Map and the View
- Data sources and formats
- Vector layers
- Events, listeners and properties
- Controls and Interactions
Where can you find it?
The book has been written with the awesome LeanPub platform. Its slogan is Publish Early, Publish Often and I think I didn’t follow too much it. Because of this I want to make a pre-relase, to see the readers acceptance, get your feedback and know if all this effort worthwhile.
Thanks to LeanPub platform, once you buy a book you are allowed to download its updates freely. I will notify you when new releases are available.
Please let me know everything: from mistakes in my sentences or code to costs (is it expensive or has an acceptable cost).
