Call for Contributors for Issue 11: Love and romance

For our third issue of 2018, we’ll be talking about love and romance! We’re looking at the technology that brings us together with our fellow humans. Our guest editor for this issue will be Thursday Bram.

Here’s a few ideas to get you started:

  • How to understand the information a dating site collects about you
  • Almost anything about matching algorithms
  • Technical concerns of ending a relationship (when do you kick folks off your Netflix account?)
  • Date ideas randomizers
  • Wedding planning tools with APIs or SDKs
  • Analysis of fan fiction

We look for ideas that will be effective at an advanced beginner to intermediate level of technical knowledge, and that are grounded in the author’s personal experiences. We’re especially interested in work from people who are part of under-represented groups in technology. Contributors are paid.

Find the details and submit your ideas at Submissions are open through March 8.

Note from our guest editor: Love is for everybody. I want pitches about technology for different people with different experiences. There is one constraint I want to talk about, though: Try to keep your pitches on the PG side of things. The Recompiler’s readership includes high school students, so I want to be mindful about how we cover any particularly sexy topics.
