Why Write for Hackers & Slackers?

None of us are getting paid from writing free tutorials, but the of benefits to contributing to the greater communities of data science and software engineering often outweigh small amounts of money.

Hackers and Slackers is viewed by thousands of people worldwide every day! Many of those people turn out to be friends, recruiters at big tech companies, or publishers looking for book deals. We’re not promising good fortune, but there are a lot of reasons why H+S might be a good first home for you:

  • First and foremost, everything you write is your own. You aren’t limited to making content exclusive here.
  • We’ve been lucky in the way that search engines have treated us. When most people come across our site, they usually stop searching because they find what they’re looking for. As a result, content published here tends to become visible quickly.
  • We’ll do the work of dressing up your posts for you! We provide artwork for all posts, and even build custom modules for posts which need extra love.
  • You’re safe here. No topic is too small to cover, and you’ll never have to worry about creating content that’s “good enough” here (some of our most popular posts are about basic topics)! No matter what happens, we’re all here to make each other better with input.
