Ok, I’m writing a book review about a book I didn’t read. 😦 The book is written in Chinese, and I’m not good enough at translation software yet to read the book. But for anyone who can read Chinese, if you don’t already know about this book, you should check it out.
According to Amazon.com. the author is Director of Intel Labs China, and the book has a developer focus. The github site includes a snapshot of the EDK2, with a few examples. Even if you can’t read Chinese, you can still benefit from reading the samples. The book was published January 1st 2015, and Gthub appears to have last been updated in May. From the Amazon.com abstract:
