I have heard that self publishing on Amazon is extremely lucrative if you have a non-fiction work better than those currently in the market.

If you write fiction, you should find a real publisher, but I have heard only good things about self-publishing textbooks and instruction manuals if you have more comprehensive info than anybody else is putting out.

If you have your own website you want to sell from, use Create Space to make physical copies. If you don;t want to do the distribution, sign up with Amazon. They will ship the books ordered and also offer an e-book edition.

The only issue i can think of is that you might need some editing before publication and or someone to proofread it. if you have had it both proofread and looked over by an editor then go ahead and self publish, im sure you could hire someone to do this for you.

Otherwise, find out who publishes programming textbooks and approach them, maybe they will buy it from you for a couple of grand and give you some of the royalties or something?

I know a few people that have sold their books on amazon as digital downloads, their book just gets lost in the nether because they dont promote their work and neither does anybody else, so if you do that, make sure you go around to all the programming communities and spruik your work, you might make an easy $50 or something depending on your pricing.
