Alan Richardson: I test things and help people test better. How can I help you?
My new book "Automating and Testing a REST API" is available now.
I have just open sourced the first book that i wrote. The first version was not 'professional', I wrote it in a wordprocessor, exported to pdf, and uploaded it to Lulu and Lightning source. But it sold because I had a specific audience in mind, that I believed in, even if publishers did not. If you believe in the product you are creating then you find a way to get it to market, and don't allow 'professional' to cause you to procrastinate, 'good enough' is good enough. You can find the first and second editions (and all the source code) for my book on github https://github.com/eviltester/seleniumSimplifiedRCBook Or follow the link in the profile.
A year or so after releasing my unprofessional first published book. I created a 2nd edition because the tool I was writing about was updated - and there still were not good publishing tools available (so I wrote my own). You don't have to. There are easy to use publishing tools like leanpub.com which I have used for my last 3 published books. There is nothing stopping you entering self publishing with very professional tools with minimal learning curve.⠀ ⠀ You can find the first and second editions (and all the source code) for my book on github http://buff.ly/2ncsqcR⠀ ⠀ Or follow the link in the profile.
