Open Collective Update—December 2019
Lots of new features, seeking feedback, free pizza + we're hiring!
Feedback Wanted: New Expense Flow
Expenses are how Collectives pay money out to contributors. We're working on a big update to make the whole process easier.
Events Design Upgrade
Events are a great way to grow community, sell tickets, and manage sponsorships, with transparent budgets and expenses built-in (example).
Much Better Docs
We've been working with Brazilian documentarian Anna e só through Google Season of Docs, resulting in huge improvements to our docs.
Want to stay up to date with upgrades and fixes to the Open Collective platform? We now have a changelog tracking it all in one place.
ConversationsCommunity discussion forums! Let us know if you want early beta access.
Dealing with Spam
We can now limit spammers from creating comments, expenses, or contributions. To get someone blocked, contact support.
We're working with Github to enable projects hosted by Open Source Collective to fundraise for their Collective through their repo.
Work with us!
We're looking for:
- A front-end dev to revamp our homepage (freelance project).
- A full stack developer to join our fully remote team.
Growing Community One Slice at a Time
Over the last couple years, Cloudflare has sponsored over $20,000 of pizza for 80+ tech meetups around the world through their Collective, reaching over 4500 people. Find out how to get your pizza sponsored!
Collective Action for the Climate
We welcome new Collectives Fridays for Future Europe and US, and new fiscal host All For Climate, helping financial support reach the movement.
We 💙 our contributors!
