How to become an author for codedamn publication?

Thank you for considering joining codedamn as an author. There’s so much that needs to be done in the developer space – and writing blogs and helpful articles are one of the best ways to contribute back to the community.

We have a simple motivation – help learn people code who just need a little push. We can achieve it effectively only by creating an energy loop where we help people learn and those people help other people learn. Codedamn’s news section is one of the major pillars of learning at codedamn.
