FAQ

This page addresses some of the common questions we get on this site.

Can I Write a Tutorial For this Site?

We are always looking for talented tutorial writers to join our iOS tutorial team, so the short answer is absolutely!

As an author, you’ll get the benefits of a lot of exposure on the site including an article byline and section in the about page, personal editing assistance from myself and potentially artwork for your tutorial, access to private team forums and contracting opportunities, and other unique opportunities available only to members of the iOS Tutorial Team.

Currently the iOS Tutorial Team is full – however there are are two ways in:

  • Via the waiting list. Anyone can join the iOS Tutorial Team waiting list immediately – just contact me and I’ll put you on there. Any time we need a tutorial and the iOS Tutorial Team can’t cover it, I’ll offer it to volunteers on the waiting list. In the event more than one person volunteers, I’ll choose the person with the most experience. If you are chosen and write the tutorial, you’ll be paid and made a full member of the iOS Tutorial Team!
  • Via an unsolicited tutorial. Another way in is you can write an unpaid tutorial on a topic of your choosing (but it’s probably best to contact me first and make sure it’s something of interest to the readers here). Note the tutorial must be a tutorial not published anywhere else. If the tutorial reaches our quality guidelines and is published to the site, you’ll be made a full member of the iOS Tutorial Team!

What is the License for the Tutorial Source Code?

The license for the source code in the free tutorials is the MIT license, except when specified otherwise. No attribution is required (but is of course appreciated!)

What About The Tutorial Text?

You are not allowed to copy, modify, merge, publish, distribute, sublicense, and/or sell the tutorial text – full copyright is held by this site, and all rights reserved.

Can I Translate These Tutorials?

You cannot translate any of the tutorials from this site and post them on your web site – we hold the copyright for these tutorials and are in the process of translating the tutorials into other languages ourselves.

However, we do have a Translation Team on this site that you can join to help translate the tutorials into other languages and have them integrated on this site! By joining the Translation Team, you will help other developers across the world, get a lot of personal exposure, and get a ton of free stuff!

If you’re interested in joining the Translation Team, contact me.

Can I Advertise on this Site?

Absolutely! Advertising on raywenderlich.com is a great way to reach a ton of talented iOS developers. This site has almost half a million visits per month, about 8K RSS subscribers and Twitter followers, and almost 4K newsletter subscribers.

We sell ads on the sidebar of the site. You can purchase ads directly and get more info at our BuySellAds.com entry.

Are You Available for Consulting?

Several members of the raywenderlich.com team are currently available for contracting work. If you are looking for an experienced iOS developer to help you with your app, please contact me and I will get you in touch! :]
