The Manning Early Access Program, or MEAP, is a program that allows you to purchase an electronic copy of a book even before it is published. This allows readers to participate in the development of the book's content. You will of course receive the final version of the book when it goes gold. I recently got my hands on a copy of the MEAP book, Location Aware Applications. At the time of this post, only 50% of the book has been completed. So here are my early impression of this upcoming title.
