In this new program we aim to produce and promote content that is relevant, significant, solution-focused and replicable, as well as usable for developers, DevOps or platform engineers, and data professionals. And we want you to work with us.
Share your helpful content on open source technologies, data infrastructure management, or data architecture. Let us help you create and publicize your experiences, your sage advice, your wit and wisdom.
Who can contribute?
Well, in a word, you.
At Aiven, we live and breathe open source. We want to help developers, platform engineers and other data professionals achieve more in their roles by using the best open source data tools in the cloud to build innovative solutions backed by great data infrastructure.
Even if you haven't written anything before, we encourage you to start - tell us what you have in mind, and we'll support you along the way.
How do we start?
If you’re interested in writing about data infrastructure, that’s perfect. If you’ve got something to say about your collaborations and experiences, great! Let’s get started together. Here’s how it goes:
We’ll have a kickoff call about the topic, and hammer out a content outline.
Draft your content and review it with the Aiven team.
Once approved, your content is published through Aiven’s assorted channels.
Profit! We send you your reward.
