Write a blog post

Are you interested in writing a blog post about your experience with Camunda? Great! We’ve created a template to help you get started.

Title of Post

Start your post with a brief hook, also known as a lede. Be conversational and personal…Tell a story to draw the reader in, or start your post with a straightforward opening statement. You can end your introduction with a sentence that explains the problem you want to solve, sets the stage for the story you’re telling, and touches on how you came to your conclusion.

Body

The body of your post provides the substance that supports your main idea, or explains the solution you found to the problem you’ve established in your lede. Try to include screenshots, code snippets, and gifs to illustrate the steps that you’re taking along the way. For code snippets, you can write in Markdown and/or use code blocks.

For any images you embed into a post, remember to add alt text!

Concept Building 

This is where you’ll build on the topic you introduced in your first paragraph. It’s an opportunity to dig deeper into the concept you outlined. This can include going into more detail about:

  • Your use case, including how Camunda and/or process automation has helped your organization
  • An interesting customer success story made possible with process automation
  • How you solved a problem or challenge you were facing
  • Why you chose a particular technology, built a specific project, or worked on a piece of software
  • How you applied what you learned in your introduction

(Optional) Further Exploration Paragraph

Here’s where you can dig into complex topics, back up a customer use case story with interesting data, walk through a tutorial, or really show off some in-depth code or a technical process. This paragraph is also an opportunity to explore how you implemented any solutions you outlined above, and what steps you plan to take in the future.

Conclusion

Let the reader know they’ve made it to the end. Finish your post with a brief restatement of your main point. Tell the reader you hope they found your post helpful and encourage them to get started with your idea. 

Key Takeaways and CTAs

Here’s where you can highlight the top 3-4 key takeaways a reader can bring back to their organization after having read your article. These are high-level, one-sentence summaries of each of your paragraphs. For example:

  • Here’s how you implement process automation
  • Why our organization chose Camunda
  • Relying on data is important
  • In the end, automation = success

Close out your post with an explicit call to action that says what you’d like the reader to do next: sign up for an account, use a particular feature, build something, etc. If nothing else, ask the reader to leave you a comment about the post or join us on the Camunda community forums.

Inclusive writing tips and best practices

  • Be sure to address everyone referenced in your post by their correct pronouns. If you’re not sure of their pronouns, ask
  • Limit your use of jargon. If you do use jargon or industry specific terminology, please define it clearly.
  • Write short, concise sentences
  • Don’t make your post region specific – keep it global
  • Use inclusive language: ‘Everyone, people,’ versus, ‘Guys,’

Technical blog post formatting tips:

  • Break up large chunks of text with screen captures, images, code snippets, etc.
  • If you think a post is getting too long, consider making it a series instead
  • Make sure your code snippets are readable in your screen captures
    • Use alt text for images containing code, and give an example of what that code does in the description.

Get started with the Camunda Community Hub

The Camunda Community Hub is the home for Camunda open source community-contributed extensions. For open source project developers, it’s a community of maintainers and Camunda employees that provides peer support, aims to streamline release automation, and aids in project discoverability. The hub also provides best practices and resources for maintainers hoping to build a new Camunda community extension. Any interested Camunda community maintainer can migrate an existing extension they’ve developed to the Camunda Community Hub, or create a new community extension. We look forward to seeing the ways that you iterate on and extend Camunda.

To learn more about the Camunda Community Hub, visit: https://github.com/camunda-community-hub/community or read our blog post, Introducing the Camunda Community Hub

If you have any questions about getting started with the Camunda Community Hub, you can reach out to us at community@camunda.com. You can also follow our Technical Community Builder and the Directly Responsible Individual (DRI) also known as the main point of contact for the Community Hub, Rin Oliver, on GitHub at @celanthe.

Engage on our Camunda Forums

The three official Camunda forums are as follows: 

Our community forums are a place for active, thriving discussion with the broader community as a whole. Sometimes, Camunda team members may even reply to a topic or start a new thread. They’re a great place to go if you’re stuck with something, need to troubleshoot an issue, or just want to toss around ideas and best practices surrounding process automation. 

Keep in mind that our forums adhere to a standardized set of community guidelines and expectations in addition to our Code of Conduct that Champions are expected to adhere to at all times when interacting with the community.

Organize a meetup

Exchanging ideas and learning about the experiences of others can be a great source of knowledge for everyone, and attending a meetup is the perfect vehicle for this. A meetup brings together people who share similar interests, which will allow them to connect, ask questions and exchange personal user experiences.

Creating a Meetup group can be a great way to connect with the wider community, get new insights, gain public speaking experience and help the local community grow their knowledge base. Organizing or participating in a meetup group can be highly beneficial for yourself, but it’s also a great way of giving back to the local community.

If you would like to organize or speak at a meetup, take a look at our meetup starter guide or reach out via community@camunda.com
