You've got tech knowledge aplenty to share. Maybe you blog. Or speak at conferences. Or conduct trainings. Or offer consulting services.
But have you thought of writing a technical book?
The fame, the fortune, the glory! (Okay, we may be stretching here....but anything is possible!)
If you've seriously considered taking a step towards publishing a tech book or you're merely curious about what it would take, join me at JavaOne for the BOF panel session: So You Want to Be a Published Technical Author?, where I ask three publishers and two authors about the ins-and-outs of breaking into technical publishing.
The conference catalog currently lists two speakers (JavaOne system limit), but here's the full lineup:
- "The Publishers"
- Meghan Blanchette, O'Reilly Media
- Joel Murach, Murach Books
- Erol Staveley, Packt Publishing
- "The Authors"
- Arun Gupta, Oracle Java Evangelist
- David Heffelfinger, CTO of Ensode Technologies
Bring your questions on anything and everything you'd like to know about getting published! It's sure to be an informative hour.
