About the Book

"Things are only as complicated as they are badly explained" 

Proper documentation is essential to avoid struggle and frustration when working with simple things that only seem complicated by not being properly documented and explained. 



"Working example is worth thousand words"

Just like the picture is worth thousand words the same goes for the working example. Documentation in the form of working examples is proved to be the fastest and the most effective way of transferring knowledge. Sometimes an example is all you need to get the things done. And if there are some accompanying comments that explain what is going on even better. This approach is used in this book. This results in fast learning and the ability to apply tutorials when you need them in the spirit of Just In Time Support. 

I wish you rapid learning!
