Packt is planning to advance its line of NetBeans books and recently announced a call for NetBeans experts interested in becoming published authors to get in touch with their book ideas or otherwise. This doesn't require any past writing experience. All that we expect from our authors is a good knowledge of their subject and an ability to communicate clearly in English.
A lot of NetBeans books have been published recently but most of them focus on a general overview of the subject. However, in reality, there exists a range of audience for information on how to use NetBeans IDE and the NetBeans Platform to do specific type of development. This range runs from absolute beginners to seasoned professionals. So, there's a need of books to meet the requirements of these different audiences.
We are keen to make a mark in this area and develop NetBeans books across a range of existing series, from Beginner’s Guides and Cookbooks, to advanced tutorials for the more advanced applications developers of NetBeans.
We are interested in producing books that are as focused, specific, and as practical as possible. We are keen to hear ideas for NetBeans books aimed at communities of intermediate to advanced developers and newbies. Authors who can make this vision an achievable reality are invited to contact us with their book ideas or otherwise.
We’re looking to commission books on topics such as:
- Developing Java Games in NetBeans
- Reference Guides on NetBeans IDE and NetBeans Platform
- NetBeans Plugins Development
- Developing professional applications with NetBeans Platform
- NetBeans best practices
- and others....
The list of topics here is definitely not exhaustive. If you are aware of an area which needs NetBeans books, we are definitely keen to hear more about it.
