Another thought that just came to mind: with some of the recent advances with PHP, how about a book on OO PHP?
What if all the world you think you know is an elaborate dream?
What if you could look right through the cracks?
Would you find yourself afraid to see?

I would like to see these tech/code topics for visual graphics applications covered as HeadFirst titles:

+ ActionScript for animation and interaction in Flash

+ ExtendScript (JavaScript) for Adobe Creative Suite automation

+ XML for data-driven publishing from InDesign

I would like to see a book that's close to Head First Software Development, but with the focus on building, maintaining and deploying web applications (LAMP mostly) rather than compiled projects.

I have learned a lot from Software Development, but it is focussed on code that is compiled and not all of it is applicable to interpreted code run on a server (using build tools and deploying for example need to be done differently).
Also, web apps usually have the focus not on calculating or carrying out tasks, but on showing the data (and inserting it to the database, but this is not the hardest part, in my experience). I personally like to experience insights and examples that have to do with web applications and handle the specific issues that may come up in lamp-environments.

QUOTE (bob5820 @ Jul 31 2007, 05:40 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
I've enjoyed the Java series and am currently making my way through the HTML book. I'd like to see a Headfirst book on Python


I agree! A Head First book on the Python language to extend my studies from the HF Programming book would be wonderful!

Not to mention, a Head First book on a Python based web application framework (i.e. Django, Pylons, etc.) would make for a refreshing break from everyone and their brother writing Rails books right now (no offense to Head First Rails). wink.gif

I'd like to see an HF book on algorithms. Calculus would also be great and seems a natural extension to the geometry and algebra books you've already done.

The educational books are excellent! I would love to see a couple revolve around some of the science courses in the Alberta curriculum (or something close to it). For Example:
  • Pure Math 30 (which is what EVERYONE needs help with in Canada)
  • Chemistry 30
  • and Physics 30 (the head first physics book was pronominal but only dealt with concepts from physics 20)

I would buy them in a heartbeat!

Hello to everyone,

This is my first time here. I have already read JavaScript, Web Design and OOA&D. The style is great! smile.gif

That is why I would like to propose you write a book about Ant! This tool is very capable but, as expected, complex, too!

However, your team has proved to be very effective in simplifying things. cool.gif

I really enjoy reading Head First books. I have several books already, and had purchased them with the intent of diversifying my development experience. I am wrapping up the Head First Java, but had recently used PHP & MySQL and Rails for some school projects. I ended up switching my intended Rails project to Groovy/Grails. I really enjoyed the Groovy/Grails language, and think this would be a great topic for a new book.

Grails is a fairly new language, and leverages a lot of new popular technologies such as Spring and Hibernate. It is an extremely versatile language that was built using a lot of the functionality that Ruby on Rails uses, like CRUD operations.
