If you are interested in becoming an InfoQ editor, please send us a message telling us a little bit about yourself, what areas you are interested in, and how you would cover those topics.
Contribute a mini-book
Do you have an idea you could express in 30-80 pages? A mini-book is a quick way to get published and provides you more visibility than a standard long book. Please view our minibook guidelines.
Our Editorial Core Values
InfoQ.com is a practitioner-driven community service whose purpose is to facilitate the spread of knowledge and innovation in enterprise software development. As editors and practitioners, we work towards this common purpose by participating in a member-driven editorial process to share knowledge via news, articles, interviews, conferences, and more.
Information 'Robin Hoods.' One of our primary functions is to seek out information from the few elite that have it and put it out to the masses. When we find out about something cool that the rest of the community should know about, we see it as our duty to bring it public, so that the entire community may benefit from the knowledge.
Best, not first. We are not a "breaking news" site; it's OK to publish something a few days after an announcement, as we gather material to tell the story in greater depth.
Facilitators. We facilitate the growth of the communities we are writing about by giving exposure to new and existing movements, ideas, and to the people behind them, as opposed to pushing our own agenda. As facilitators, our goal is to collaborate with the community to produce valuable content.
Content you can trust. Our content will be free from bias, either personal or vendor-driven, unless clearly marked as "opinion." Users can expect InfoQ content to be educational, accurate and without marketing agendas. This is our brand promise and the reason our readers trust us. We strive to adhere to the principles of journalistic integrity in our news writing activities, while recognizing that we are practitioners, not journalists, trying to do the right thing.
Meet the Community Editors!
My current employer wanted me to stop many of my external activities, including InfoQ writing…While I could have stayed and stopped doing external writing/training/speaking, I felt it was a sacrifice that I didn't have to make. I'm a better technologist because of the research I do for InfoQ and my other external activities. I think it's a privilege to get to write for InfoQ, and it's one worth changing jobs for! - Richard Seroter
Writing for InfoQ does make me better at my work, which is a big reason of why I keep doing it! -Roopesh
When I started my current job I made it clear to my current employer that my work at InfoQ was non-negotiable. I just couldn't see myself giving up this job; it's just way too much fun!- Jonathan
I'm enjoying the things I do with InfoQ! It's great to work with people from all around the world and to help to share their thoughts and experiences on InfoQ. It also helps me to stay on top of what is happening in the software world.- Ben Linders
In retrospect, the pc membership was one of the best group efforts that I have ever participated in. There is a true collective ownership of the process, of the content, and of the conference! The team is incredible to work with, and we have become good friends in the process. Personably, aside from the friendships I have forged, what I value the most about the pc experience is the connections I was able to make over the last 6 months. Meanwhile, it opened my eyes towards the promising technologies and multiple views from the thought leaders….The investment pays off in many intangible ways! - Khawaja Shams, QCon New York
