Launching the Appsmith Writers Program!
Editor's Note: We have paused the form for new applications for the writer's program. If you wish to contribute, please send an email to email@example.com along with a brief outline of the topic you wish to write on, links to two writing samples, and mention your areas of interest/expertise. Please note that we receive a high volume of emails, do allow us some time to get back to you. Be assured that we will do our best to get back to you in a timely manner.
Are you an engineer who enjoys creating content and sharing your knowledge with the world? We'd love to talk to you!
We've been creating a lot of content at Appsmith over the last few months for our growing audience of developers to educate them and share our knowledge with them. You can check it out on our Youtube or our blog. As an open-source project, we don't just want to share our codebase with our community but also our collective knowledge.
What is the Appsmith Writers Program?
At Appsmith, we want to work with engineers who love writing or creating videos. Whether you're a veteran of the trade or a young student just starting out, we'd love to hear from you.
And of course, pay you for the work you do.
All that we care about is whether you can write in-depth and in detail. We're looking for long-form pieces which help educate our community (1500 words and up).
We don't care about your style and grammar. We've got a great editorial team to help with that.
Is it paid?
Yes! We pay anywhere between $200-$400 for content created (video, templates, blog posts, tutorials).
What kind of content should I send in?**
Below are the types of content we're most excited about:
Blog Post / Templates
- A tutorial involving Appsmith. Some examples here, here, and here.
- A how-to guide explaining some of Appsmith's features. An example here.
- A forkable template (for example, here's a template of a standup app). The ideal template will include a database (check out all databases supported here)+ some API integration. We connect to most REST APIs.
If you want to write an engineering post that could be relevant for Appsmith's audience of backend developers but not directly about Appsmith (for example, this), we'd be very excited to discuss those too.
If your proposal is accepted, we’ll feature it on our website with your name and share it with our rapidly growing open-source community.
These videos can fall into different categories:
- A Tutorial where you show how you built something using Appsmith.
- A How-to guide explaining some of Appsmith's features.
If you want to have an ongoing engagement with Appsmith, where you want to create Youtube videos on broader engineering topics (not directly related to Appsmith) on the Appsmith Youtube channel, please do reach out as well; we can figure something out.
Great, how do I get started?
The best way is to fill our form to share an outline, and we can take it from there. (Note: We're going to only consider previously unpublished content)
If you're keen on exploring this opportunity but don't have a clear idea of what you'd like to write, we're happy to help! Just mention this in the form, and we will get back to you ASAP!
