Kick-start collaboration with Profiles

The key to collaboration is creating a central source of truth.

For both teams and individuals building with HackMD, a dedicated workspace is provided for organizing and housing all internal documents.

But what if you want to share select notes or information publicly? Posting links across your social platforms is an option, but what if there was a more efficient way to manage all your public notes?

There is.

HackMD vs Notion: Choosing the right tool

Developers juggle countless moving pieces.

For them, tooling is not a convenience, but a vital component in the workflow. We know this.

That’s why HackMD prioritizes developer-centric features, making it ideal for efficient and effective technical documentation. But how does HackMD stand up against other tools like Notion? We dove into some of the factors to consider when deciding between the two.

Crafting an effective RFC

Request For Comments, or RFCs, serve as the cornerstone of innovation, providing a platform for individuals to propose, refine, and standardize ideas that shape the digital landscape.

We uncovered the process of creating an RFC document. Specifically…

  1. Knowing when (and when not) to write an RFC
  2. Defining the purpose and scope
  3. Researching your problem
  4. Structuring your RFC and what to include in each section (!)
  5. Sharing your work with key stakeholders
