Confessions of a Prolific Moonlighter (with a Chronic Writing Disorder)

A ~5 minute Ignite talk (20 slides, 15 seconds per slide) that provides some advice on writing tech books — and life.

The fundamental takeaway is that a book is a startup! (If you want it to be…)

  • It’s a product (and/or services.)
    • But it’s especially product
  • Tech writing is a skill
    • It’s story-telling
  • Moonlighting is a skill
    • Maintain work/life balance
  • You can have a startup
    • Write a book!
