LinuxPR: Andamooka adds new Andamooka Collections system and new books

Feb 27, 2001, 18:22 (0 Talkback[s])

"The new Andamooka Collections system lets users create custom, annotated, open content books. Four more books have been added to the Andamooka library of open source documentation and learning materials bringing the total to 21 (or over 2000 pages)."

"The Andamooka Collections system allows users to create collections of pages from the open content available on Andamooka. These collections can be read online and shared with others. For example, a system administrator might want to create documentation for the users s/he supports. S/he could assemble relevant chapters from several open content books and annotate the pages to "localize" the documentation, creating a single, high quality, reference for local users."

"Andamooka is proud to host the following books:

  • GIMP: The Official Handbook, a book filled with gorgeous GIMP-created images, by Kylander & Kylander.
  • Linux System Administrators' Guide, a "classic" (circa 1993) reference by Lars Wirzenius and Joanna Oja
  • Dive Into Python by Mark Pilgrim, a guide to advanced Python programming, and
  • Introduction to Programming Using Java a textbook by David J. Eck that is also suitable for self-teaching.
Each is available for online reading, annotation, and discuss."
