Justin,

I’ve been in discussion with Brian over the past month in wrapping up a title (on container orchestration) and moving on to co-authoring here. We’d yet to reach out… until now. :)

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!

Hello,

I'm working on a book with O'Reilly on Cloud Native Infrastructure. The book
is focusing on general practices and ideas for how you should set up your
infrastructure to manage cloud native applications. It will show examples
with CNCF projects but I hope to not go too in depth (1-2 chapters per
project) so I can still reference other books/resources if readers want to
dig deeper into a project. The book isn't targeting a single cloud and I
hope to keep the design principles as generic as possible so readers can
replicate the ideas in any cloud including on-premises.

The reason I'm emailing the list is I'm going to need some help (this is my
first book). Thank you everyone who has already reached out to me and
offered assistance. I'll reply as soon as I'm able to. Right now I'm looking
for the following resources.

Co-author: I believe, and Brian from O'Reilly agrees, having a co-author
could help the process for areas I'm not strong in, getting more immediate
feedback, and obviously sharing the load of writing a book. The book is
going to be a 6-8 month commitment. If anyone is interested or has
suggestions for someone they'd recommend please have them email me.
Reference resources: white papers, case studies, and other books on
infrastructure design. I've already read a lot of books/papers on the
subject but I'm sure there's some I've missed. The Linux Foundation is also
working on making their case studies available for the book. Let me know if
you have any favorites so I can make sure I reference them.
Example applications for each project focus. I don't plan to build one giant
application throughout the book but rather focus on one small application
per chapter and explain why a certain project/idea is beneficial to have. An
example would be something that sends a lot of logs and show examples of why
fluentd implements log collection in a cloud native way vs relying on
syslog.

I have already submitted the book proposal and am moving forward with the
project but haven't actively started writing. I'm still gathering/organizing
thoughts and information. If anyone has resources they'd be able to share
please send them.

Thank you for any help you can provide and I'm sure I'll be asking the
community for more reviews and feedback in the coming months.

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.
