Announcing our listener contest...This Developer's Life - Crowdsourced
Oh yes. We want to hear your stories. Record your best developer stories and send them to us and if we think they rock, we'll include them in the next episode of This Developer's Life.
What we need from you:
- Your story. We don't want interviews, we want stories. Tell us about your passion, or something crazy that happened at work while solving some technical problem.
- Keep your audio clean. Use a decent microphone or at least make sure you don't "overdrive" your microphone by talking to close or two loudly. Don't record while mowing the lawn and don't record in a giant echo chamber.
- Be passionate. Talk to us like you're talking to a friend.
- Don't worry about editing or music. Just share. We'll handle the Lady Gaga mashups.
- Note we may move your audio around or change the order of stuff to make it more listenable or interesting or both.
- Change the names of companies and people to protect the innocent (or guilty)
- Know that by giving us your audio you're releasing it the Creative Commons and that we may or may not use it for a future show.
Send us a link to your audio file and what you're talking about and we'll do the rest. See you next time!
