Hello, everyone - During our weekly calls, we have been talking about preparing for LinuxFest NorthWest (LFNW). There is a lot of work that is being done to prepare to show off Snowdrift.coop at LFNW and to get the word out about what kind of work is going on.
That being said, we kind of hit a road block in terms of development work. I think you are all aware that Bryan has taken on a full time job with a different company, and although he remains the lead developer for Snowdrift.coop (only now as a volunteer), he hasn't had a lot of time to work on the site. I have tried working on more front-end work (getting the pages that the design team made updated and ready for production), but in addition to my inability as a professional programmer (I think of myself as an amateur hobbyist programmer), my day job is getting in the way lately as well. A few other developers have stepped up to help a little here and there as well, but those are on items that are outside of the big elephant in the room: Our funding mechanism. Bryan had set up the basic structure for a library to perform all of the funding mechanism tasks. Currently, as I understand it, the part that is functioning is the ability to take pledges. That leaves a LOT of work still to be done, especially collecting those pledged funds and keeping track of the money that was brought in, for which project, for which users, etc. Continuation of the pages (primarily the user & project dashboard pages) on the site pretty much revolve around a funding mechanism that works and keeps track of the funds. If there's anyone out there who's willing to help us out with writing more of the funding mechanism, especially if we can get something more operational before LFNW, it would be greatly appreciated. Stop by our freenode channel on IRC and chat with us about it, talk about it here on the dev mailing list... Just let us know you can help. Thanks!! - Jason (JazzyEagle)
