Writing development books is an excellent way to make some money on the side and get more recognition in the industry.
Also, you get the fun of developing, without all the responsibility of running a whole system in production, which is the best part, I think :D
I wrote one about React last year, and I plan my next one about serverless AWS.
I’m not sure that a book is the best way to make money on the side given the time it takes versus how much it pays. Doing some freelance work might be a better idea for this goal 😅
But yes it’s still a very fun project, and having your name written on a book is really exciting 😁
Sure, freelance work pays much better, but I wouldn't consider it money on the side. xD
I wrote like four months on the book, while doing other things and made enough money from it to pay my rent for almost a year or so.
Keep us posted, I'd love to read more about serverless :D
