I just find a name for my own publishing company: Aviskara Publishing Indonesia. Hopefully on October 2023 will be open for business.
My plan to write a book in the next two years is a series of seven books, that consist of:
- API Black Book (published)
- Docker Black Book (in writing process)
- AI for Productivity Guide
- Cloud Computing Black Book
- DevOps Black Book
- No Code Black Book
- Software Project Management
My latest book, API Black Book, is finally out-of-print. Unfortunately, the selling price given by the publisher is very high, so it may not be affordable for the target market, namely students or those learning programming.
This triggered me to plan my own publishing business. As regulations become easier these days, it should not be too hard to start. I contacted several service companies to arrange a sole proprietorship license for this publication. Furthermore, I need to find a printer that can be trusted to avoid piracy.
For the next books, I will publish them myself so that the price of the books is more affordable for those who need them.
My first book was published in 2012, about information system project management. The book’s concept is quite obsolete now because it’s still discussing traditional project management with the waterfall model. Today there are a lot more methodologies. I still don’t have any plan to write the new edition yet.
