D8 Accelerate is designed to help Drupal 8 get to a full release faster. It's a pilot program from the Drupal Association to put $250,000 of community funds toward this huge milestone.
As Chief Wearer of Many Hats™, I sit on both the DA board as well as the committee who manages these funds. Here's some insight into how and why D8 Accelerate is spending your hard-earned cash.
I've set a very ambitious goal of $20,000 since that's 8% of $250,000 — get it? ;)
Update 4/30: Now with amazing (well, dorky) PRIZES to donators!
Here's the deal. You donate to my fundraiser, I give you personalized stuff!
- $20 = Drupal haiku
- $50 = Drupal limmerick
- $100 = Silly cartoon
- $500 = Audio file of my awesome daugther attempting to pronounce your nickname
Other suggestions? Hit me up on Twitter/IRC! :) Note that I'd rather stick to "virtual" stuff since shipping things (especailly from Canada) is expensive, but won't rule it out. :)
Remember: Every dollar you donate has been matched by anchor donors, doubling your impact.
Thanks for anything you can spare to help make Drupal 8 available sooner for everyone!
