Our Topic

Got a lot to say about a topic? Writing a book can be a highly rewarding challenge. It’s not as hard as you might think, and it helps your knowledge reach many new kinds of people.

Everything you wanted to know about what it takes to write a book for a technical audience. Pro’s and con’s of self-publishing vs working with a publisher, what to write about, the process of writing, how to market, and more.

This talk draws from lessons I learned from writing Hello Web App, my Kickstarted book covering Django web app development for beginners.

Our Speaker

Tracy Osborn is a designer, developer, and entrepreneur living in the Bay Area of California. Building websites since she was twelve, she always felt an affinity to computers, the internet, and what it brings us. Tracy graduated with a BFA in Art & Design with a concentration in Graphic Design from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, and worked as a web designer for five years before teaching herself programming and launching her first startup, WeddingLovely. She’s also an avid outdoorswoman, hiking over 200 miles on the John Muir Trail solo in 2014.
