Stop! Write, Collaborate & Win with AirPair & Compose


AirPair Logo

We love words at Compose almost as much as we love databases and we really love words about Compose and our databases which is why we are really excited to be sponsoring a $500 cash prize for the best post about Compose submitted in AirPair’s $100K developer writing competition.

If you don't know them, AirPair is all about developer collaboration, bringing developers together with virtual video conferencing. They also appreciate to power of words and that's why they recently introduced Social Authoring on Airpair. It's a publishing platform built on Git so you can create, collaborate, edit and enhance your words with other developers in the same way you do with your code. The AirPair founder talks about all this in detail on the AirPair site.

What better way to launch such a fine endeavor than to hold a writing competition, which is what AirPair are doing. Over the next 12 weeks you can win your share of $100,000 in prize money for the best tutorials, opinion pieces and tales of using Compose in production.

How have you plugged into the Compose database stack? Is there something cool about Compose that you've learned that you need to share? Have you connected Compose's databases to other services APIs? How has Compose helped you get your job done?

In January, the average post on the AirPair platform was read 15,000 times - so it’s a great way to share your skills, wisdom and the neat things you’ve made with fellow developers.

Submit your posts here at where you'll find the rules, dates and how the prizes stack up.
