This is my busy season at work so I haven't had a lot of time, yet,
but I downloaded the PDF version and took a quick look at a couple of
chapters I need the most.  I'm quite impressed.  Good job!

An epub version would be nice. I find they work better on tablets than pdf.

I hope an epub version is coming. However, porting highly-formatted material
to .epub format can be difficult, so it's going to take some time.

If anybody has any advice, I would appreciate hearing it.

Calibre <> is an open source ebook manager which can import various formats, including ODT, and convert to various formats, including EPUB. I haven't used it much; about the most I've done is convert a couple of CHM (Windows help) files to AZW3 to read on a Kindle, which seemed to work reasonably well. On the Kindle, images are scaled to fit on the page, but a press-and-hold allows them to be enlarged to full screen and zoomed in further to see detail. I don't know how well it does with complex documents, but may be worth trying.

I have used calibre to convert Getting Started with Base from ODT to ePUB format.
