A new year is here, which means it’s time for an all-new editorial calendar.
Technical.ly’s edit cal, as we call it internally, is a reporting series with monthly themes relevant to the D.C. tech community. The idea is to give ourselves an opportunity to dive deeper into 12 topics our community cares about (while still maintaining our regular diversity of coverage).
In 2018, we dedicated extra reporting to topics such as office trends, accessibility and cybersecurity. A few past themes are returning next year in some form, but our 2019 calendar is mostly new. Check it:
- JANUARY — The realLIST
- FEBRUARY — How to get hired (in preparation for NET/WORK DC — and coinciding with Technical.ly’s 10th anniversary)
- MARCH — Women in tech
- APRIL — Growing industries
- MAY — Accessibility
- JUNE — Career trajectory
- JULY — Tech stacks
- AUGUST — Team dynamics
- SEPTEMBER — Technologists of color
- OCTOBER — Corporate innovation
- NOVEMBER — Workforce development
- DECEMBER — Office trends
Many of these follow a similar line: helping you do your job better. You can expect a handful of profiles on folks doing the most within these sectors, guest posts from relevant experts and a whole bunch of reporting on trends, challenges and solutions.
For instance, in March, we might write a handful of profiles about the women of the city’s dev teams. Stories published during team dynamics month might include a how-to list for improving company culture. This month, of course, we’ll publish the latest edition of our annual realLIST roundup of this year’s most promising startups. (Get your last-minute nominations in here.)
And yep, it’s true: Technical.ly is coming up on 10 years of existence. We have a bunch of fun stuff in the works. Stay tuned.
