Mastering Ethereum Cover

Mastering Ethereum is a book for developers, offering a guide to the operation and use of the Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, RootStock (RSK) and other compatible EVM-based open blockchains.

This repository contains the draft of the book, currently in progress, scheduled for publication in Q4'2018 by O'Reilly Media. The publication date has been delayed, unfortunately, due to some personal issues. Expect to see content developed and pushed here in Q1 and Q2 2018.

PDF Version

There is no PDF version available. While it is possible to produce one, and you may do so for personal use, please DO NOT publish a PDF. The publishers and the authors provide a very generous open license that allows anyone to read this book for free on GitHub. It is not convenient to read that way, but it is free. Convenience, in the form of a nicely packaged PDF, ebook or printed book, is what the publishers charge money for and what pays for the publishers and authors work. Just like buying bottled water instead of drinking from the tap, buying a printed copy, PDF or ebook pays for the packaging. If you publish a PDF copy, you are violating the license, as a PDF is a derivative form and the -ND part of the license means "no derivatives". Doing so makes publishers less likely to publish with open licenses.


The current status of the book is IN PRODUCTION. No further changes will be accepted into the first edition. The final draft of this book has been delivered to the publisher for final copy edit and production work. It is scheduled for publication and first print by December 2018.

Once production is completed, the repository will be tagged as "edition1_print1" and development will continue for errata, bug fixes and preparation for the second edition, which goes into production in late 2019 or early 2020.

Contributing, reviewing and commenting

This book is developed collaboratively and openly, here on GitHub. We accept comments, contributions and corrections from all.

You can chat with the authors and editors on Gitter chat.
