Technical.ly is always looking for new angles to chronicle how local tech is changing.
We also love to share the perspectives of the people behind that change. Some notable guest posts by community leaders we’ve published in recent months:
- “How much do Pittsburgh-area software pros get paid? Code & Supply surveyed 436 of them to find out” — The national-facing software community organizer asked 785 total technologists, including a large subset from Allegheny County, and found a median base compensation of $117,000. But there’s a lot more to this data.
- “This Pittsburgh HR consultant has advice on navigating hybrid work models after COVID-19” — Or, why you need to embrace the new normal, revamp old practices and create a connective culture.
- “5 ways Pittsburgh’s public servants are using human-centered design” (2018) — How the City, County and their partners are using innovative methods to elevate services, improve internal performance and make local government more transparent.
- “Who will buy my business? 3 steps you can take to find the right acquirer” — First, you need to identify what you really want out of the deal, advises this business consultant.
- “Young people are speaking up for change. But we need more voices” — A student leader offers a look at his own journey in activism, and tips on how to get started.
Want to share your own perspective? Here are three reasons to write for Technical.ly:
1. Share your expertise.
You know your organization, your job, your field better than most. What have you learned? What should others know? How can the sector improve, and what are some actionable steps to get there? Tell us.
2. Spread the word.
We can only cover so much. Have a cool event coming up? Want to offer Technical.ly readers a discount to your program? There may be a better chance your story will make it to print if you write it yourself. That said, your piece should still be interesting and insightful — tell us first why your event (for instance) stands out. (Bonus points if it aligns with our editorial calendar!)
3. Change the narrative.
We’re particularly passionate about amplifying the voices of women, people of color and other underrepresented folks in tech, so if that’s you, please reach out, even if you haven’t contributed professionally before.
Pitch us your ideas or just drop us a line letting us know you’re interested in writing for us and we’ll be in touch.
