About five months ago, I started writing a new technical book. I didn't have to, but the idea was burning me, and as I had been working on a particular data science topic the previous months, I felt it deserved to be shared with a larger audience. Of course, I could have just shared some code or perhaps put together some article, but the idea deserved more. So, I reached out to my publisher, sent him a proposal with an outline of the book, and before long, I was good to go!
During these months I had been writing regularly (pretty much daily, at least on weekdays), with just a couple of weeks off, one for the Christmas holidays and one for the preparation of my podcast. This book project involved both text, images, and code (in the form of a new type of code notebook, for Julia). So, at least, I didn't get bored, plus I was a bit imaginative with a couple of the problems I tackled in the code notebooks.
Although it's a bit soon to tell when the book will be out, at least the most time-consuming part is behind me now. Hopefully, I'll be able to focus more on other projects now. I'll keep you posted through this blog regarding updates on the book. Cheers!
