How IT vendors can participate in the GovITwikii
Information Technology vendors can participate in the GovITwiki by creating a page to highlight their solutions, and how they have been used to solve government business challenged.
Share as much information about your company and products as you'd like, including contact details. (Only if desired). Please be discreet on how you link to your information. GovITwiki volunteers reserve the right to remove links deemed inappropriate for the pages where they have been added.
Don't be afraid to promote yourself as an expert in your slice of the IT world. Discuss the technology that you use or offer. Help others learn more about it and how they can solve their IT challenges. Encourage others to contact you via your "my talk" page.
How to Get Started
- Choose a user name and register here. In order to keep our content of the highest quality, you will need to verify your email address to edit pages. This process is automated. We don't keep the email addresses nor collect any personally identifiable information. After you create your user name, feel free to add details and a brief description on your personal user page (Just click on your name at the top of the page). How much you share here is totally up to you.
- Search for the name of your company or product using our search box. The results will show you if and where the wiki mentions those words. The results page also gives you a chance to click on the search name and create a new page by that name. Click through and create your new page!
- On your new page you will see a text editing box. It starts with a WYSIWYG editor. But you cal click the Wikitext button to use a straight text editor instead. Our Editing Cheatsheet page tells you how to use both editors.
- Once you have created your page, look for places around GovITwiki where you can link to the page.
- Most vendor pages should reside under the technology section. From the front page you can see sections sorted by technology, by major initiative, by hot topics and more. Try not to over-link, but feel free to add links where they are appropriate.
That's it! thanks for participating. Please stay involved by creating other content too.
- Look for links shown in red. These areas need more information. If you are familiar with one of these areas, feel free to click through and add this information, with documentation. You can also find things that you can write about on the Wanted Pages article.
- Use the search box to search for a specific subject area related to government information technologies or specific agency IT projects. If the page has not yet been created, follow the create this page link and add new content. If the page does already exist, feel free to add additional information (documented).
