Commonalities between tech writing, web development, and ebook development

Six months ago, I was looking at going back to school to learn ebook development. However, I could not find a course meeting my requirements that was explicitly about ebook development. Looking at various job ads, though, I realized that many of the skills needed for ebook development are also needed for web development. And many of those skills are also shared with technical writing.

Technical writing, ebook development, and web development share many skills.

So my plan is to learn web development skills and add them to my tech writing skills, and in that way be able to do ebook development!
