PHP Foundation launched

Parent Feed: 

There is a common misconception that large open source projects are well-funded. In practice, many rely on a small group of maintainers.

The PHP programming language is one of them. Despite being used by 75%+ of the web, PHP only has a few full-time contributors.

That is why the PHP Foundation is launching. Its mission: The PHP Foundation will be a non-profit organization whose mission is to ensure the long life and prosperity of the PHP language..

Acquia is proud to support the PHP Foundation by contributing $25,000 to the foundation, alongside Automattic, JetBrains, Laravel and others. Our donations will help fund the development of PHP.

PHP is vital to the functioning of governments, schools, non-profits, private companies, public companies, and much more. If your organization relies on PHP, I'd encourage you to make a contribution.

Large open source projects like PHP need meaningful, long-term support. I remain very passionate about how to make Open Source production more sustainable, more fair, more egalitarian, and more cooperative. It will be interesting to see how the PHP Foundation develops.
