Back in February, we asked developers to submit articles to our blog as part of our Write Stuff program. We wanted to provide developers with a platform to discuss databases and to explore the innovative ways in which they use them. In this cycle, we saw some really amazing submissions and all of the articles accepted into the Write Stuff program were published on the Compose blog.
Each developer that had an article published through the program received $200 cash and $200 of Compose credit. Now, we want to reward our Write Stuff authors even more and we need your help. We've collected all five of the accepted articles for this cycle together, and we want you to choose your favorite. Over the next week, we'll look at those results and, with a panel of judges at Compose, we'll select the most influential article from this cycle. Once announced, we'll give the author of the winning article a $500 bonus.
Check out the articles below and let us know which one you liked the best. You can also optionally leave us your email address and we'll randomly select voters to receive some Compose swag! Voting will close on May 8th, 2017.
- Simple OAuth With MongoDB & MySQL - Don Omondi
- Creating an AWS VPC and Secured Compose MongoDB with Terraform - Yamil Asusta
- Faster Operations with the JSONB Data Type in PostgreSQL - Lucero Del Alba
- Use all the Databases - Part 1 and Part 2 - Loren Sands-Ramshaw
Are you a developer who has something to say about databases? Do you want to reach a wider audience with your ideas about databases (along with getting $200 cash and $200 in compose credit)? If you answered yes to any of these, check out the details of how you can publish through our Write Stuff program. Already have a great idea? Submit your abstract through the program page and we'll get you started.
Our eighth cycle begins on May 1st and runs until the end of July. For this cycle, we're looking for database related articles for a senior developer audience, especially on any of our current database offerings. Articles can range from how-tos to why-nots and from first steps to deep dives. If it's your first time writing and you have a subject or topic you know well, write about that. If you are new to writing but have an idea, send us an outline and abstract of your idea and we can help you make sure that it's headed in the right direction for our audience.
