In this talk, I dive into my experience writing and publishing a security book. What goes into writing one of these 400-page technical textbooks? Let’s dive into the realities: from idea to book.

We all love technical blogs and books. Many people dream about writing one too.

I had no idea what I was getting myself into security blogging, and before I wrote my web application hacking book “Bug Bounty Bootcamp”. A lot of the work that goes into writing and publishing a technical book goes beyond coming up with technical information and code samples.

In this talk, I am going to dive into my experience writing and publishing a security book and writing technical content. How does one write good technical content like security writeups and blog posts? What goes into writing one of these 400-page technical textbooks? How does one make sure that everything in the book is technically correct? What are the pros and cons of working with a publisher?

In this talk, we dive into the realities from idea to tech blog / book and discuss how you can write one too.
