Contributing Articles and Demos to the NetBeans Web Site

Lately the whole NetBeans team has been working on not just producing new features, but on explaining how to use the existing NetBeans features to make you more productive. Now you too can gain fame and riches by posting your NetBeans article or demo to the NetBeans web site.

Here are some things you can do:

  • Write a Tutorial
    We have a template you can use, and a wish list of possible topics. When you are done, send the tutorial to James Branam. Don't worry, if you don't want to write a whole tutorial, just send us your list of steps and best practices that you discovered, and our writers will turn them into a tutorial.

  • Make a Flash Demo
    We have some guidelines for creating Flash demos with free tools. You can make a Flash demo from any existing tutorial, or create a new Flash demo. Make the ZIP of the demo available somewhere (they are often too big to e-mail) and send us a link to Webmaster. We'll post it in the Flash demos web page.

  • Blog About NetBeans
    If you have a blog that regularly talks about NetBeans IDE either in English or in another language, we'd love to list it on the Planet NetBeans site. See the instructions, and send us the link to your blog feed!

  • Translate NetBeans
    Are you interested in efforts to localise web site content, or the IDE itself, in your native language? We would love your help! See the Localization Quick Start page for info.
