Author Details


This is to make technical review easier if you are approved as an author, so we can give you access to testing servers. If you don’t have an SSH key, please create one.

Submit a writing sample now!

Please submit 1 to 3 how-to article titles for articles you’re interested in writing. Topics should relate to installing or configuring free and open source software on Linux or FreeBSD from a sysadmin perspective. Please note that we can publish original content, but cannot republish content already posted elsewhere.

This is a writing sample, and the primary way we evaluate your application. Your sample can be one of two types. You can submit the introduction and first two steps of a tutorial you’d like to write. (Please do not submit the completed tutorial yet; we want to respect your time.) While you don’t have to be an experienced writer, you’ll have a much better chance if you follow DigitalOcean’s tutorial style. Alternatively, you can submit a past article you’ve written that showcases your writing style on a technical topic. If you go this route, please make sure the writing you submit has a similar level of technical content and explanations as the tutorials in the DO Community. At this time we are accepting articles only in English.

Please share a link to your website, GitHub account, Twitter profile, etc. If you maintain an open source project (or contribute significantly to one), we'd love to hear about it! Let us know about your experience with the technology you want to write about and what interests you in becoming a DO author, too.
