Farewell to the Book Forum Space

Howdy Book Forum Community!

With a heavy heart, we are reaching out to share some bittersweet news. After much consideration, we have made the difficult decision to close the Book Forum space, effective this December. This decision wasn’t made lightly, and it comes with a sense of sadness as we reflect on the wonderful discussions and connections that have flourished here.

Over the years, the Book Forum has been a space for us to engage in vibrant conversations, share diverse perspectives, and celebrate the magic of code. We want to express our deepest gratitude to each and every one of you for being a part of this community. Your passion and the thoughtful discussions you’ve contributed have made the Book Forum a special place.

However, as one chapter closes, another one opens. We are excited to announce that we are not saying goodbye to the conversation but rather relocating it to a new and vibrant space – The BNR Community. We believe this transition will allow the discussions to evolve and continue in a broader context, encompassing a wider range of topics.

The BNR Community is a place where Nerds can continue to connect, share recommendations, and delve into the world of software development. We invite you to bring your enthusiasm, insights, and love for code to this new chapter. Let’s make The BNR Community an even more engaging and inclusive space for all things literary.

As we bid farewell to the Book Forum, we want to extend our heartfelt thanks for the memories, discussions, and connections that have made this space so special. We look forward to seeing you in The BNR Community, where the conversation continues, and new adventures await.

Thank you for being a part of our code-loving community.

Where is this new community? I don’t see any link to it from the main BNR website.

Wishing you a happy coding!

Will the existing forum content still be available in read-only form?

The existing content is being migrated to the new space in an archive format to maintain continued access to troubleshoot code.

That’s a relief! I’m still visiting some of the old books from time to time (having bought no less than 7 over the decades!), and the forum is a crucial backup when things go wrong. The Objective C books in particular are still valuable to me. So thanks for keeping this content around, just in case!

It’s wonderful to know that the content, especially the Objective C books, continues to be a helpful resource. Maintaining this repository of knowledge is indeed crucial, and your appreciation makes the effort all the more worthwhile.

If there’s anything specific you’re looking for in the new platform or if you have any suggestions for improving our resources offered there, feel free to let me know. Your feedback is invaluable!

Thank you for being a part of our community and we hope to have your continued support and participation.

Howdy Book Forum Nerds,

We wanted to update you about some important changes you may notice taking place around the forums - the transition migration of our discourse space to The BNR Community platform has begun :partying_face: !

As part of this transition, the ability to create new topics has been paused. However, all existing content will remain visible, and you can continue to engage by replying to previously shared discussions. We’re excited to announce that our new Book Discussion space in The BNR Community platform is live!

  • :warning: :rotating_light: Attention :rotating_light: :warning:

Please note that, as the migration is ongoing, not all topics have been fully transitioned yet. We appreciate your patience as we work to complete this process. The Forums are scheduled to officially sunset at the close of 2023, we encourage you to continue sharing your questions and responses there in the meantime.

We understand that change can be challenging, and we want to express our sincere gratitude for your continued support. We’re committed to delivering an exceptional experience to you in The BNR Community. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us and look forward to seeing you there.

Wishing you happy coding!
