$$$$ — with the potential to earn $1k plus per month even as a new writers
Since my husband is a software developer, indie dev, successful YouTuber, and online course instructor, I love to stay up to date.
This morning, I read two interesting articles from software developers for software developers:
This crazy combination of reads got me thinking.
You can earn some extra money.
Dr Stuart Woolley shares:
It’s already widely known that the only way to get paid market rates for your skills as a permanent employee in the software engineering industry is to change jobs regularly.
and Denys Opria knows how to earn some extra money — without explicitly saying it in his article. I asked him though.
Denys (as well as Dr. Stuart who is an editor) writes for CodeX.

Benefits of writing for a specific software developer publication on Medium
I told Denys about a friend of mine on Medium who writes about tech and software development.
He earns almost $1K per article — which is good because he has a baby at home and no time to write.
Anything is possible, guys!
So take advantage of the fact that
- the readership for tech and software development topics is already there. Meaning, when Medium was a mall, a lot of tech-interested people would go there.
- you can get noticed by companies and recruiters.
- you can rank on page one on Google in a specific topic.
- you can copy & paste (snippets of) your article and show your expertise on LinkedIn.
You’re a software developer and interested in tech?

Then be smart and join CodeX — as editor Dr. Stuart and new writer Denys did.
