Hi everyone,

I'm writing up a proposal for this summer of code book sprint. While we
could write a specialist resource,  I think that there's a really strong
need for a beginners' front end web development resource.  If we can
demonstrate that this textbook development process works, ideally we'd be
able to expand it to other topics.

If anyone would like to be involved, please let me know.

Kamon, are you interested in being added to the list of potential

If anyone wishes to propose another book topic that would have benefits for
School of Webcraft participants, please let me know and I'll see if I can



(Note, I'm making this proposal from the context of a Webcraft community
member as I'll be informally involved with the project after August).
