“The first tip [to write] is just do it. We definitely think that we don’t know how to write, but if you just write the way you speak, usually you end up with pretty good stuff!”

“[Zero to AI] is a book that is geared towards people who have an MBA in business management who really have no experience in computer science. But they want to be a part of this revolution, they want to have a place and want to be a part of the conversation.”

“Writing has some clarity of mind on what you’ve done, and I like to add some story telling to my blog posts. I just started by telling the story of how I started to solve a problem of something related to my field.”

—Gianluca Mauro
