Crowdfunding OpenLayers 3

November 1st, 2012 by Tim Schaub · 11 Comments

We’ve been getting great feedback on our OpenLayers 3.0 fund raising
, and to help ease contributions from individuals and smaller companies we’ve just launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. We’re looking to raise at least $20,000 from users of OpenLayers, to complement larger contributions from big organizations who love OpenLayers.

There are a number of ‘perks’ you can receive for donating, including limited edition OpenLayers t-shirts, your name in the release notes, and participation in the final OpenLayers 3 sprint. If you’ve ever had your work helped by OpenLayers then now is the best possible time to give back.

And please get in touch with if you want to help attract larger organizational sponsors to OpenLayers. We’ve got a prospectus for organizations that give them ‘perks’ as well, like their logos prominently featured as supporters and even one year of commercial support on OpenLayers 3.0.

    Thanks for OpenLayers. It seems that the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign is not active anymore.

    I find it so inspiring that I’m not the only person out there over the age of 20 who doesn’t know any of this!

    Time to learn *about all of it*.

    What i do not realize is if truth be told how you’re
    no longer actually a lot more well-appreciated than you might be
    right now. You are very intelligent. You understand therefore significantly relating to this subject, produced me for
    my part believe it from numerous various angles.
    Its like men and women aren’t involved except it is one thing to
    accomplish with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs nice. All the time maintain it up!
