Big Blue Door are going to sponsor me to work on LocalGov Drupal

No sooner had I written a blog post suggesting people could sponsor my work on LocalGov Drupal than Big Blue Door had answered the call.

Beautifully crafted digital products and experiences that matter.

I mentioned in my last blog post that if agencies and organisations wanted to contribute more to open source but can't because they are busy with client work, then why not sponsor some one else to contribute for them.

If the person contributing is a seasoned contributor and ready to work on a project that you are invested in, it makes perfect sense. It also means that person can hit the ground running and start making an impact straight away. With this being the case, Big Blue Door got in contact with me and instead of offering me sponsorship of one day per week (which is what I was asking for), they offered two days per week.

This is great news and a quadruple win-win situation for:

  1. LocalGov Drupal - we'll get to fix lots of issues in the backlog and perhaps work on some new ones
  2. UK and Irish Councils - an even better LGD site for you, without you needing to pay anything
  3. Big Blue Door - they get to have high quality contributions to the LocalGov Drupal project, showing themselves to be very conscientious community members
  4. Me - I get paid for doing something I love

Please join me in thanking Big Blue Door for their very generous support of my open source development.
