devCU Software develops free open source software applications for Social Communities and Forums, Media, File Sharing and Streaming Applications, CMS Applications, and PHP Frameworks as well as modules and plug-ins for a myriad of PHP applications. What once started out as fun and learning to creating small applications years ago has now become a larger entity and needs your backing to keep it going free and open for all.

What we need? Your Help
By becoming a Patron or supporter of devCU Software and its sister projects like WX Disco, besides knowing you are a great person by supporting free and open source development, you help developers concentrate on the software and not all the other stresses involved. These stresses or better known as expenses are costly and not getting cheaper. Over the past couple of years we have handled much of the financial end of things to keep all the software and site applications not only free and privately run but also ad free with no tracking code to protect members privacy. We always make sure security and privacy is number one in all our endeavors and that will never change. It has been a challenge and has taken every minute of my spare time as well as a nice chunk of change out of my pockets so we need help from the community. We have the will and the creative spark but need the backing and maybe some help from devs who want to volunteer their time. These applications have become bigger and more complex as the tech rapidly changes and its impossible for one or two people in their spare time to keep up. Financial backing is needed badly to improve the development process and flow, our getting older infrastructure and get these applications out there for the public to enjoy. Could also use some motivation, I would like to see if people are honestly interested in any of these projects and want to support the creation whether they intend to use or not. You can support the open source world by supporting small private outlets like ours. The more support the more we want to give back. So please if you believe in freedom of development available to all support our projects.

Keep it Free but Premium to the MAX
I want to keep all our software and site applications free, open, and private for you the user. This benefits all but is costly. The proper development infrastructure must be implemented and that can only be achieved with financial backing. I never want to be one of those "Heres our open source version free and here is our Pro or Enterprise version that has everything you actually want but at $200 a month". Our vision is to have the Enterprise version as the only version and it is free and open to all..

  1. All of the software we create is FREE
  2. We do not sell anything that we develop and never will
  3. We do not advertise or market on any of our sites
  4. We do not use analytics or tracking code to invade your privacy or gain financially on any of our sites
  5. We do not not store or sell your private information at any time to anyone ever
  6. None of these intrusive/tracking technologies are programmed in any of our software.
  7. 100% clean coded with only what is needed to run the application properly
  8. There is ZERO income generated by the open source sites, projects and communities we run and develop. 
  9. All expenses are covered privately either by devCU staff or from member donations
  10. To keep this list a reality we need your help!

Your backing helps finance our work and infrastructure
  • Operation Costs including hardware IE Servers that host our projects and sites
  • Commercial software needed for development of our open source projects
  • Licensing costs like IPS 4 for our development environments
  • Premium API connection costs for our free premium WX Disco Apps
  • Occasional Free lancers, cause I don't know every programming language and could use a hand now and then
  • Improve our development infrastructure, developer collaboration and expand on our ideas
  • Jugs of Hot Coffee every morning to get me started

The WX Disco Project
One of my biggest development projects and loves is WX Disco which is our new weather discussion site. All the software is customized and we are developing a weather dashboard application for members which will implement premium weather site features for all to use free. So the cost of accessing these premium APIs are part of what will be supported as well as the hardware and infrastructure needed to achieve these goals. This project began August 2018 and is ready to get upgraded this Spring just in time for the first Summer heatwave hopefully. The membership has been amazing with supporting and backing the site since its inception. Many in the community have asked for access to Patreon so they can show their support of our work and here it is. What we want to do is see members support our development endeavors here. A site where not only they can go to a socialize and chat about the weather but get all the latest weather information in real time. Including warnings and notifications for severe and dangerous weather events. Fully customizable for their own micro climates and location. One site for all their weather needs with live maps, charts, models, hi-res radars and data streams. A very large, technical and time consuming project that we are bringing free to the open source community. It also includes the development of IPS dashboards application which will also be a big endeavor and great for the social forums community as a whole. All free and open source for the member and development community

More information will be available at the WX Disco site in April 2019.

IPS Community Suite Projects
Our IPS 4 (Invision Community Suite) projects are all premium built and complex software applications that would easily sell for $35 + at the IPS marketplace. They are all free and in active development with help and input from the community. We have 5 open source IPS projects, 3 of which are major applications for the software.

Laravel 5 Projects
We have several Laravel 5 projects which have stalled due to lack of resources and time which we are looking to get back online as well as several other PHP framework modules.
