I'm writing Publishing Python Packages

This is my first DEV post in quite a while. I've been really busy. In 2020 in the midst of the pandemic we purchased a home across the state, renovated it, and moved. Not long after getting settled into that, I jumped into writing another book.

Over the last several years at ITHAKA I've focused on creating modular code shared across our department and platform, maintaining a few dozen Python and JavaScript packages. I've also come to love the open source community—though I don't contribute nearly as often as I'd like—and thinking about ways to solve some the issues project maintainers face in their day-to-day work.

I hope that my new book, Publishing Python Packages, can make even a small impact in helping project maintainers be more productive through tooling and automation, so they can continue focusing on their projects and communities.

Publishing Python Packages by Dane Hillard for Manning Books

Manning has made a 50% discount code for the book available, and if you've been thinking about grabbing a copy or know someone who might benefit from it, I hope you'll be able to take advantage of this price reduction while it's in early access. Use the code mlhillard350 at checkout.

I'm happy to answer any questions I can about the book, the publishing process, or my writing workflow as well! Hope to hear from you ☺️
