I’m happy to announce that the book has now reached 1.0!
This means it is content complete and contains everything I wanted to include in it. It does not mean it can not be extended, but I don’t plan to include any major topics that is not already included. It is more than 650 pages long (the PDF version) and includes 25 downloadable code repositories.
In the end, I included more then I initially planned. I wanted to focus exclusively on the backend, i.e. how to write and deploy an AppSync API and keep the client-side out-of-scope. Then at some point I realized that there are unique challenges on the API consumer side that are important enough to include in the book.
And what about the future? I’ll keep the contents up-to-date whenever something worthwile is coming, though I don’t expect that AppSync gets big new features in the near future, more like small and niche updates.
