Learning resources for the community (SDK Delivery Platform / Examples / Online samples): Constantly monitor the response of our community regarding our examples and SDK in order to suggest improvements. Also constantly evolve our list of useful examples that the customer really need and can benefit from. To be able to define and plan the goals of an example/demo application that presents our products features. To be able to develop such an example fully or in the cases of really complex user stories to prepare the ‘example frame’ where another developer should make the implementation.
Blogging and popularizing the product: Planning our blog efforts base on what new features do we have, what features are underestimated and where do we need some focus. This will include a bit of technical work as all blogs should be prepared together with an example application that demonstrates the case. Prepare plan/schedule with the required blog posts and keep it updated. Closely communicate with our evangelists into determining what blogs they can do and what stays for the team (prepare together the plan for evangelizing the product). Make suggestions to evangelists on webinars or other interactive sessions on topics and features of the product that we consider important.
As an Information Developer for Sitefinity you’ll contribute to one of the most important aspects of the product – providing guidance on how to use it. If this sounds like the right opportunity for you, then we would be looking forward to hearing from you.
