Crowdfunding OpenLayers 3

November 1st, 2012 by Tim Schaub · 8 Comments

We’ve been getting great feedback on our OpenLayers 3.0 fund raising
effort
, 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 ol3-funding@googlegroups.com 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.

    If I give $120 right now do I still get the T-SHIRT ?

    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*.
