$906
per month


I'm Alex, one of the core maintainers of Yii PHP framework for more than 7 years, its representative in PHP-FIGactive conference speaker and participant of various other OpenSource projects such as Codeception or Php Inspections (EA Extended).



The idea of this campaign is that each month companies and developers interested in Yii may transfer a small amount of funds that is, combined pays for extra time I contribute to Yii framework and OpenSource in general.

By having more time for Yii, I plan to finish new websitefinish and release 2.1 and start working on the next big thing while maintaining 2.x branches of the framework.

In the future Yii team plans to create a proper foundation so Yii as a whole could be funded instead of me only.

Goals
$906 of $3,000 per month
If this goal is met, I can spend significant extra time on Yii and OpenSource in general. That would mean solving 2.0 issues, working on the website and side projects, writing development news and moving towards 2.1.
