Many of you know me from my work promoting testing within the PHP community, through books and conferences and training conferences. I'm also the lead developer for OpenCFP, a self-hosted PHP web application that helps conference organizers manage their call-for-papers process.
This project has succeeded beyond my initial plans but the project needs some attention to continue to grow and meet the needs of conference organizers. Your sponsorship would allow me to devote more time to working on OpenCFP instead of pursuing other paid projects during my off-work hours. OpenCFP is at a point where components need upgrading, new features need to be added, and I have costs associated with hosting the companion application OpenCFP Central, which aims to be a place for single-signon for OpenCFP and hosting talks for easier submission to other OpenCFP installations. Working on all this takes more than the one afternoon a month I can currently give it. Your support will allow me to devote 16-24 hours a month to the project.
