Can you believe it’s 3 years since I wrote my first eBook for the Syncfusion Succinctly series, back in January 2013 Syncfusion released “GIS Succinctly”, I never really though it would go much further than that because I really didn’t believe I had that much to offer as a technical writer.
Here I am, 3 years later, and my 7th book has just been released, this time on the “NancyFX micro web framework”, a .NET framework that I’m extremely passionate about using, and I wholly believe that once you try it, you’ll never want to go back.
One of the great things about Nancy however, is that it runs just as well under Mono on a NON WINDOWS platform, just as well as it runs on windows. This in my mind opens up a whole world of new possibilities. For example, I have micro services, written for and running quite happily under Rasbian on my RaspberryPI, where I’ve attached a GPS unit to it, and set up my own Atomic Clock/Time server for my network.
Nancy is an amazing little framework that just keeps getting better, if you want to download the latest book for free you can grab a copy at
There’s also a sample application to play with available on my GitHub account at
You can find a full list of all my books to date under the “My Writings” menu entry at the top of this page.
Happy new year….
Now before you all start getting super exited, and reaching for your CV’s (or your Marketing packs if your a recruiter):
I NEED YOU TO PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE FOLLOWING
So here it is at last, my Syncfusion Succinctly E-Book on CSS3
100 Pages of info all about the latest CSS specification for those wanting to learn it, as pleased as I am with it however, there was a huge amount I had to leave out of it.
covering everything about CSS3 presents an absolute monster amount of information to get through, so I’ve tried to pick a balance of topics and include a lot of usefull information that you can use every day, alongside some of the “WOW Factor” stuff you can use to impress your bosses and clients.
I could actually have gotten at least another two full books just on things like animation and UI construction (Maybe I will in the future), but for now I hope what you find in here helps you achieve the designs and web applications you hope to.

I’ve been using Postgresql for years now, those who know me, know fine well that it’s my absolute favorite database in the whole wide world. Those who know me may also recall I do a lot of GIS and mapping work using Spatial SQL among other things.
For a recent project I was working on, I was required to model a 3D landscape/terrain of a given location.
