What is the lakeFS Writer Program?

We created the lakeFS Writer Program to encourage data practitioners to share their expertise with the lakeFS community, spark discussions, and show how to solve various problems using lakeFS.  


What does the process look like?

1. It all starts with your application

To get started, apply through this application form. Please share your experience in data engineering and related areas, whether you know and use lakeFS, and any previous writing experience.

2. Choosing the topic

Next, we will agree on the topic. We have a list of topics to choose from that we would like to see covered on our company blog. 

3. Creating an outline

You're ready to craft an outline for your article. 🚀 We will review it and provide you with all the things you need for writing it. Make sure to check out our Submission Guidelines before sending over your first draft!

4. Delivering the first draft

Once we receive your article, it will be reviewed by one of our engineers and our editor to make sure it's consistent with the tone of voice and text styling. ✍️

5. Getting published and paid

We will publish your article and distribute it across our channels. You will get paid for your contribution and can share your article through your own social media channels too! 🙌

You get paid $350 for an article after it’s published. We handle payments using Giftly.

lakeFS claims the blog post piece as its own after it’s published and you’ve been compensated. You can still cross-post this article on other platforms as long as you use a canonical link to the article URL on the lakeFS website.

There is no limit to the number of submissions, but we reserve the right not to publish every submitted article.
