Will there be an ePub version?

I purchased the MEAP digital only, wondering will there ever be an ePub version of the book available? Thanks

ePub is easier to read on iPad as font can be enlarged. For PDF, I need to zoom in and out, scroll left and right to get the font big enough for a comfortable read.

I can't speak for Manning Publications and their choice of available formats, but you can convert the PDF to ePub by using the Calibre tool. See for example http://lifehacker.com/5509965/how-can-i-convert-pdfs-and-other-ebooks-to-the-epub-format for a quick how-to.
