A culture of giving back

InfoQ is far more than a static online directory; it’s a living community that is spearheaded by the ones who make the existence of the site possible: the InfoQ Editors. With a strong passion for software and innovative technologies, they are sharing their experiences with all readers in an effort to give back to the community and to accelerate the human side of software development.

Why software engineers write for us

  • I write for InfoQ because it helps me keep up with the latest and greatest technology achievements. The constant flow of potential news items is a great way to know what’s going on in the development world. Having the opportunity to pick the things I’m interested in to write about is really cool. Not only that, but I get to improve my writing skills because InfoQ has world-class editors that edit and improve the pieces I write. Finally, writing for InfoQ provides an avenue to connect with the authors of leading-edge software via Q & A. I highly encourage aspiring technology authors to take advantage of the opportunities that InfoQ provides.- Matt Raible (Raible is a well-known figure in the Java community, and has been building web applications for most of his adult life.

  • 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 have the opportunity to write for InfoQ, and it's one worth changing jobs for!

  • 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!

  • 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.
