A Guide to Electron

Interested in Electron? Not sure where to start? You're in luck, because I have spent multiple weeks squeezing the most important lessons learned while building Electron apps at Microsoft, Slack, and Ghost into a short guide. Over 55 pages, I explain why Electron is as popular as it is today, how one would go about building a little code editor, and what kind of troubles I have encountered building major production apps.

Published with O'Reilly, the short guide "Introducing Electron" is available through Safari, O'Reilly's subscription service.

If you are just interested in the code, you can find the materials and examples directly on GitHub.
