About Techblog1

Techblog is a blog about various IT-related technical topics and it’s written by people interested in technology and high-tech.

How to write an article on Techblog

The simplest way is just to send an e-mail to techblog [at] rosedu [dot] org to announce your desire to write something along with a draft in any format you want (text file, PDF, HTML). If the idea looks good we will work from there.

If you want to be extremely formal and do the entire work yourself then you first clone the repository:

git clone https://github.com/rosedu/techblog.git

then you install Haskell Platform and run ./build-exec to have hakyll and dependencies installed. After this you write your article in a posts/year/month/day/name.md file – using markdown syntax –, run ./techblog to see the future aspect of the site on 0.0.0.0:8000 and then make a pull request. Please send an email to techblog [at] rosedu [dot] org afterwards to ensure that your pull request is acted upon as soon as possible.

I have seen a bug

If you have found something which needs to be changed in the layout of the site, please leave an issue and we will start working on it as soon as possible.

If you have found something wrong inside one article leave a comment on that article or send an email to techblog [at] rosedu [dot] org or rosedu-general [at] rosedu [dot] org. We will try to fix things as soon as possible. If need be, we will write a follow-up article containing your remark and proper thanks and attributions.

I want to propose an article.

If you want to propose an article you can either edit the proposal page or send an email to techblog [at] rosedu [dot] org or rosedu-general [at] rosedu [dot] org. As soon as someone can write an article on that idea and he has some free time the article will be written and you’ll get an attribution at the end of it.
