How it works
Open source projects
Open source maintainers apply for funding, and if accepted, get paid to work on their project to make it better for everyone. Clojurists Together funds projects in three month cycles.
We surveyed our members on what they wanted us to support this round. The main things they were interested in were Error messages, Documentation, Developer experience tools, Build tooling, IDE support, Test tooling, Linters, Profilers, and Data analysis/processing frameworks
November was the first month of our next funding round. libpython-clj and Deep Diamond started in November, Expound started in December, and Oz is starting in January. This is a combined update due to the holiday break.
Clojurists Together is happy to announce that for Q4 of 2019 (November-January) we are funding four projects: Expound with Ben Brinckerhoff, Deep Diamond (Neanderthal) with Dragan Djuric, Libpython-clj with David Levy, Oz with Christopher Small.
We surveyed our members to see what they wanted us to focus on. Our next funding round for new projects will close on Saturday, July 26th, 2019 at 11:59pm PST. We’ll be funding four projects $9,000 each over three months ($3,000/mo).
Daniel has just come back from Belgium to speak at Heart of Clojure about building stable foundations. The talk was recorded and will be coming out sometime in the future. We met lots of Clojurists Together supporters at the conference and had a stand there to talk about the work we are able to fund thanks to our members.
