The Java Code Geek (JCG) Program
The JCG program builds mutually beneficial partnerships between Java Code Geeks and community bloggers whose articles are of interest to the Java developer community. The program simplifies the process of publishing selected blog articles by JCG members onto Java Code Geeks site. Through this process, our JCGs enjoy substantially increased visibility and our audience enjoys great content.
JCG Characteristics and Benefits
- We ask nothing more from you than to continue writing quality Java related blog posts. Java Code Geeks will care of the rest of the JCG process to drive increased visibility to your selected work.
- JCGs are free to publish their articles on any sites they like. Your agreement as a JCG simply gives us permission to publish your articles on our site.
- Java Code Geeks keep the right to edit the original article (e.g. for lexical and syntactical corrections). Moreover, we may insert additional links in order to further improve the reading experience (this includes links to third party sites). Finally, Java Code Geeks may provide multilingual versions of the original article, providing of course the proper attribution at all cases.
- Every JCG article on Java Code Geeks provides a link to the original post on the JCG’s blog to fully credit their work.
- You may back out of the JCG program whenever you like. Nevertheless you should keep in mind that all of your articles that we have already published on our site up until the day you decide to leave the program will not be removed from Java Code Geeks.
- Java Code Geeks will most likely not use every article that JCGs post to their blogs; we generally select no more than 2-3 articles per month from any single JCG.
Joining our JCG program is simple and easy. To be considered, just send an email to our Executive Editor, Byron Kiourtzoglou, with your quick bio and a link to your blog.
