The Devilbox is currently being developed in my spare time and mostly reflects the features that I am using for all the web projects I have to handle. In order to better present it to the majority of other software developers I do require support to cope with all the feature requests.

So first of all, If the Devilbox makes your life easier, star it on GitHub!

Joining the Devilbox GitHub Organization

If you want to contribute on a regular base and take care about major feature development you can be invited to the GitHub organization.

This however requires some prerequisites:

  1. Willing to dedicate a regular amount of time to invest in this project
  2. Already spent a decent amount of time in improving the Devilbox
  3. A good understanding about the Devilbox
  4. A good understanding about the PHP-FPM container (and how it is built with Ansible)
You can’t perform that action at this time.
