Show HN: Cloud Native Web Development – I self-published my first book


Hi,

I spent the last three months writing a 200+ page book, with 19 corresponding pull requests.

https://www.mikenikles.com/cloud-native-web-development

It’s a hands-on guidebook on how to develop a cloud-native web application based on technologies I am familiar with. Svelte, Tailwind CSS, Cypress.io, Gitpod.io, Firebase & Google Cloud at a high-level.

The goal was to walk through the entire end-to-end process, from zero to production! It walks through building a foundation needed to develop on top of. CI / CD, testing, feature toggles, production monitoring, etc.

To write it, I used Google Docs and had two git repositories: one to experiment and one that contains the final source code – where the git commit history looks like I never struggled :-).

AMA on self-publishing or the book’s topic itself!
