Re: Cloud Native Infrastructure book

Gianluca Arbezzano <gianarb92@...>

Hello all

I started to write something under a title "Docker in production" but my first idea was to produce something about how to manage modern and scalable distributed systems. After few months I realized that I can not do that alone and I decided to release some chapters (that was already written) as whitepapers.

I am still looking around to have the opportunity to write something about these topics, I am ready to write a book alone but I am open to taking part with some chapters. 
This seems a good opportunity. Just ping me if you like.

Hi all

I have encouraged Justin to post here because I think this is worthy
of promotion within the group & community.  "PTAL" as they say!
