Hey Matt!
Any news about the book? I'm currently thinking about ways to optimize my PD-game and your book would be very handy for me :slight_smile:


Pre-ordered! :slight_smile:

I'm aiming to get this out ASAP after Sparrow is done.

Apologies for the delay.


it is not clear for me if this is geared towards people coding in lua or people coding in C as there seems to be a difference in performance between the 2 when running on real hardware

This is focused on Lua.
