How much code do you need to write to make a book that is both easy to read and where every example runs fine now and in the future?
Writing a book is creating a product. A properly engineered book will work hard for you delivering excellent learning experiences to people all over the world for years after its release.
For some people, writing a book might be one of the best and most impactful ways to contribute to their favourite open source projects. For communities, supporting authors and helping them get their books right might be a brilliant investment.
In this presentation, I will share my experience writing "Learning Scrapy", shed some light on the process and hopefully inspire you to get more involved on the writing initiatives of the projects you support.
