Developer Spotlight program

If you use Cloudflare’s developer products and would like to share your expertise then Cloudflare’s Developer Spotlight program is for you! Whether you use Cloudflare in your profession, as a student or as a hobby, let us spotlight your creativity. Write a tutorial for our documentation and earn credits for your Cloudflare account along with having your name credited on your work.

The Developer Spotlight program is not currently open for applicants. Please keep an eye on our official Discord channel for future announcements.

​​ Who can apply?

Anybody who is not currently a Cloudflare employee and regularly uses our Developer platform products can apply.

​​ Submission process

Those who apply will be asked to provide a title and details for a tutorial they would like to write for the Developer Spotlight program. Selected applicants will be contacted via email and will be asked to write and submit their completed tutorial to Cloudflare’s documentation GitHub.

Once your tutorial has been submitted as a pull request (PR), we will then conduct two reviews: A technical review to check that the tutorial is technically accurate, and a content review to check that the tutorial adheres to our documentation style guide. After your PR has been approved by both reviewers and your submission has been published, you will be awarded 350 account credits to your Cloudflare account, and your name will be added to the header of your tutorial.

​​ Submission rules

Your tutorial must be:

  1. Easy for anyone to follow.
  2. Technically accurate.
  3. Entirely original, written only by you.
  4. Written following Cloudflare’s documentation style guide. For more information, please visit our style guide documentation and our tutorial style guide documentation
  5. About using Cloudflare’s Developer Platform products.
  6. Complete, not an unfinished draft.

​​ Account credits

Account credits can be used towards recurring monthly charges for Cloudflare plans or add-on services. Once your submission has been approved and published, we can then add 350 credits to your Cloudflare account. Credits are only valid for three years. Valid payment details must be stored on the recieving account before credits can be added.
