By bringing Hashnode Originals to the platform we want to help developers such as yourself to learn something new, useful, and fun every day through high-quality programming-related articles and tutorials.
All the writers will come from the Hashnode community. We know that you have day jobs, so to compensate for your time and effort, we'll provide you with money, gift cards, goodies, or donations to a charity or a foundation of your choice.
Hashnode Originals, as the name suggests, are original pieces of insightful and interesting programming articles, that haven’t been published elsewhere on the internet.
We’re looking for authors with sufficient technical expertise, who have a knack for telling a story; taking one of the general themes listed below:
- Real-world developer lessons
- Thought-provoking developer experiences, bringing in a new perspective to the reader
- High-quality tutorials with actionable insights
- Case studies and research articles written specifically with developers in mind
All accepted Hashnode Originals submissions will receive monetary prizes. Apart from this, there are other incentives … let's do a list again. 😃
