The book will be marketed to an audience of about 80,000 developers, architects, and other IT professionals as well as multiple Fortune 500 and 1000 companies.
There are many reasons why you want to participate as an author. Above all, it is about a willingness to share, to self develop and test their own ideas. Importantly, however, the purpose of the book is not about to advertise their products or services in the main text. It will be possible to sponsor the book in other ways, but not as part of the main text.
Production will be Iasa’s responsibility. Iasa is a non profit organization and as a book of this kind is difficult to generate any surplus no compensation can be promised. Each contributor will receive a copy of the final product and their authoring information included in the book.
The first kick-off meeting was in summer 2013 and launched with 7 contributors. The book is tentatively scheduled to be completed by the end of 2015.
