Write for appendTo

We love to code and we love to teach. Our blog is an extension of our mission to provide developers clear, fun, and hands-on learning experiences.

We’re always looking for new writers. Our writers are software developers who can write in a clear and accessible way. We want our writing to be produced in the spirit of this Einstein quote:

If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.
