Why become a tech author, what does it take, and how does it help me?
Regardless of what we’re trying to understand, we will turn to a book sooner or later. For the IT community and the open-source developer community, particularly where you could read the code, there has long been advocacy that good code doesn’t need documentation. We still read and buy books.
So what does it take to write a book, and what motivates people to write a book? Finally, if you write a tech book will you be able to go to developer heaven and code what you want, when you want, for whatever reason you want?
I’ll share my lessons and research in this session, dispel some myths, and maybe inspire you to start your own journey.
