I’ve been looking for a project to do this summer. I’m going to have a little over two months off of school, and I don’t have a lot of time-consuming responsibilities at work this summer. Yesterday, I found my project. I’m going to write a book on web development with Flask.
I’m not an expert on web development, or Flask. I am, however, fairly knowledgeable about both. I’ve spent countless hours looking for the best practices for coding various tasks that are expected of a modern web application. I think there is some real value in a book that lays out more advanced examples than are within the scope of the Flask documentation, with an emphasis on current best practices.
Now, I write. I have a lot of ideas for sections to include, such as “A/B Testing your Flask app.” I’m going to need to do a lot more research into what the best practices really are, but I’m setting the goal of publishing the book on August 1, 2013. I have June and July to write, edit, market, and launch the book. It may be slightly ambitious, but I plan to have a lot of time on my hands.
I’ll be posting to this blog with updates on my progress as well as samples from the book as I write it. If you want to keep up with things, I encourage you to join my mailing list by clicking here.
Also, if you have suggestions for subjects you’d like to see in the book, send me an email at mail@ this domain, or leave a comment below.
