Pascal Precht @PascalPrecht

REBASE - The complete guide on Rebasing in Git is out now!
Head over to https://rebase-book.com to get your copy.

Twitter announcement: https://twitter.com/PascalPrecht/status/1223177153837248512

After two months of writing chapters, creating illustrations, cross device testing, building the landing page and growing a customer base, REBASE is now finally published!

I'm extremely happy that the project has worked out and even more amazed that I actually managed to put it together within just 2 months!

This is just the first version and I'll keep iterating over it as feedback comes in from my readers. I'm also planning some more goodies around this ebook so keep an eye on this space.

Also, just yesterday, one day before the released, the sales have skyrocketed due to the 40% discount. Will share some numbers soon in a blog post about my authoring and publishing process.

    Congrats Pascal. What tool did you use to draw illustrations? It looks pretty good

      Hey @techbum!

      Thank you for the kind words. I've used Google Drawings haha.

        Haha, I didn't know Google had a Drawing app. Thanks!

    Well done. I just bought a copy. Your landing page described your audience (me) perfectly. If it is any help, that was the bit that made me say "Shut up and take my money". 😊

    Congrats on the release, GLWS! 🎉🥳

    Unfortunately I am not in your target audience (I just use merges) 😊

      Thank you!!

      re: merges: no problem! You'll still do merges, also when you rebase :)

        I used to only merge, but switched to rebasing a few months ago. I was mostly wary of having to go through too many conflicts. But then I found git rebase -i which let's me edit the local history much better (squish, reorder, etc), so I've been quite comfortable with rebasing.

        Unfortunately that means I'm not in your target audience - but best luck, and congrats on shipping! I would still have paid $25 to learn some more tricks, but 200 pages is a lot - the time cost is much larger than the money cost for me.

          That's very fair @mitko!

          Thank you for the kind words!
