Calling for Writers and Reviewers at DeveloperFusion
It’s taken a little while to write this, but I’m happy to say that I’ve been offered and accepted the job of editor at DeveloperFusion [http://www.developerfusion.com/]. My new role will be to commission, edit and write new weekly – perhaps twice weekly if all goes well - articles for the site to go along with the news and roundups that are already put out frequently. Initially, I’ll be concentrating on .NET development topics as that’s what I know, but shortly I’ll be looking for articles and authors on many more topics – Apple, Ruby, Python, Perl, Architecture, Databases, Java and more.
I’ve already released two articles which you may be interested in:
- Introduction to Windows Azure – What you should know [http://www.developerfusion.com/article/119329/introduction-to-windows-azure-what-you-should-know/] by Neil Mackenzie * How to migrate your ASP.NET site to the Azure cloud [http://www.developerfusion.com/article/119960/upgrade-your-aspnet-site-to-the-cloud/] by Richard Parker (@rikp [http://twitter.com/rikp])
These are the first two of a series of articles on Azure coming out in the next few weeks. We’ll also have some Windows Phone 7 stuff, F#, and a good helping of ASP.NET as well. Keep tuned to @developerFusion on Twitter and the article feed [http://www.developerfusion.com/tutorials/format/rss/] to keep pace with new articles as they are released.
We Need You Of course, it goes without saying that we need your help to keep DeveloperFusion going.
If you’re a writer, experienced or wanting to write your first article, please get in touch and let me know. All the articles we publish are reviewed and edited before release so you’ll get some good feedback on your writing style, content and coding in return, as well as exposure to some 50,000 users who subscribe to our newsletter plus many more who come visiting in through the front door. And if you’d like to write but haven’t any preconceived ideas as to what to write about, we can help you with that too.
If you’d like to help but don’t want to write, perhaps you’d care to review an article or two for us. No matter your knowledge level, there’s likely to be something in the pipeline which your help will make better. You might be able to improve a writer’s code or say whether or not their article succeeds as a tutorial from your point of view as beginner yourself. Those who can, do, as they say.
Either way, please do get in touch. The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you.Posted on May 31, 2011 #Megaphone #Writing
