Subject [jira] Commented: (INCUBATOR-70) Communication Guide
Date Sun, 18 Nov 2007 19:24:43 GMT


Matthieu Riou commented on INCUBATOR-70:

Write a book about your project.

It's a lot of tedious work but you can also propose to co-write with other authors to ease
the pain (the editor can find them if the proposal is interesting or you can suggest names).
But it's still going to be a very large and long endeavor. It's a very effective way to promote
both your project and yourself (as a writer). Some people won't even use a piece of software
for which no book have been written.

To propose a book, just go to the contact section of the editor's website to get the editorial
inquiries e-mail address and write a project proposal. Describe the subject of the book and
the targeted audience. A rough table of content will also help them in understanding what
it could look like but don't spend too much time on it, at this point you have no guarantee
that this will interest them.

Good editors: o'reilly, manning, apress. Others?
