My book Getting Started with LevelDB has now been released from Packt Publishing. Despite the generic nature of the title, it’s focused on using LevelDB with iOS and OS/X so about half the code in the book is Objective-C. The sub-title you can vaguely make out above reads “Store and retrieve key-value based data quickly on iOS and OS X using LevelDB”.
If you’re a C++ programmer on Unix of any kind, I think there’s enough value in the book for it to be worth getting – all the basics of using the C++ interface are discussed and the theory discussions are generic. I’m hoping to do some followup work to make it more useful to the pure C++ crowd especially on Windows.
I’ve created a forum for discussing the book content and associated open source frameworks.
The writing process for a first-time technical book was, as I’d been warned, many times harder than I’d expected.
