Proofreading a technical book in english

I'm the author of a technical book (about electronics and embedded systems) written in English. Unfortunately, English is not my mother language. So, my book needs an in-depth review to the text.

The book is made of about 850 pages and about 230.000 words.

I'm looking for a proofreader specialized in reviewing technical texts, especially related to computer science, programming and electronics.

The book is written in markdown, and it would be great if proofreader can handle this type of document. Alternatively, I can provide individual chapters in DOCX format, but revisions need to be enabled so that I can sync modifications to the original text.

I've attached an extract of the text so that you can evaluate the work to do.

NO AGENCIES.
