TL;DR: I wrote an article for the Codeship blog.
About two months ago, Manuel Weiss asked me if I would be interested in writing original content for the Codeship blog. Manuel is one of Codeship’s co-founders; I felt honored that he reached out to me. I was thrilled by the opportunity to guest post on a well-known tech blog, which is something that aligns well with my writing goals. (To be honest, getting paid for my work certainly didn’t hurt either.)
Now all I needed was an engaging topic for the blog’s audience. Docker is all the rage these days and I already had a lot of experience in using it for building Debian packages. And so, unsurprisingly, I decided to write about that. I crafted a short outline and pitched it to their editor. They accepted my idea and I was off writing…
Head over to the Codeship blog and read the final article, Using Docker to build Debian packages, to learn how and why I developed a build system for Debian packages at Jimdo.
PS: While I finished the article in time, I made my life much harder than it had to be. Let me give you this piece of advice: working on an article with a deadline and moving to another home should not be done at the same time.
