Update: Thanks to all those who have gotten in touch and are interested in helping with #news. I'm still working through logistics but will do my best to get back to you all soon. Regardless of whether or not you become a mod, I encourage all of you to help create more posts and comment on #news stories that you're interested in!
In an effort to encourage more developer-focused news coverage and conversations in #news, we're looking to create a DEV news team.
The team will be made up of tag moderators who will help us to stay current by writing short news stories and conversation prompts around software development.
This group will have tag mod abilities so they can assist by keeping the news tag well-organized & on topic, as well as through promoting relevant & interesting dev news posts. But different from most tag mod expectations, we're particularly looking for folks who are prepared to write for this tag and lead by example — posting short newsworthy content and creating articles that will show onlookers how it's done.
We already work with one super awesome #news tag mod, Robin, who has set up some really great guidelines for the tag. With our plans to make this tag a bigger focus on DEV, we'd love to bring on more folks to assist so that we can create the most mind-blowing developer news team anyone has ever seen.
