Here's How We Spent The Money

We believe in an open, diverse and accessible web. With your help, we want to reward people doing great work to make it happen. That's why we actively support community events and projects, and people behind them. We want to keep things fully transparent, so here we'll be reporting how we spend the money.

That's what we've been doing over the last 30 days (Feb 2, 2018):

  • we've been refining performance and updating the job board UI. Still a number of issues to fix though,
  • reached 576 Smashing members after 71 days, with 13 supporters, 343 members and 220 smashers. Total: $3734 per month. You made it happen, so thank you.
  • made Tim Kadlec's front-end security webinar freely available to everybody,
  • ran a free session on Designing Cats... Live with Ricardo Gimenes. Watch recording,
  • arranged books for @prjctrcomua (Kiev, Ukraine), MinskCSS/MinskJS (Minsk, Belarus), local communities in Kairo, Egypt, WebdeLDN (London, UK).
  • arranged teaching in the New Digital School in Porto, Portugal, scheduled for April.

Just like every month, we also reserved 2 diversity scholarship tickets for our next Smashing Conference. It's all possible with your contributions. You make it happen. So thank you.

We (still) want to squash the bugs before moving to the next steps — a Spectrum community for meaningful discussions. Coming up very soon (promised!)! Next steps:

  • continue working on Smashing Book 6 (expect early preview in a week–two) and Smashing Print,
  • watch out for new Smashing TV webinars with Mike Riethmueller and dina Amin,
  • coach new voices in the industry to speak at a meet-up or a conference,
  • support people who want to learn but can't afford it with Smashing eBooks, webinars and learning material,
  • support web-related non-profit events and meetups.

We also publicly released Inclusive Design Patterns, by Heydon Pickering, for free.

No worries, that's perfectly fine! We kindly appreciate your time and interest. Perhaps you can support the Magazine in another way:

Thanks for getting so far, and hopefully see you in some part of the world soon! Boooo-yah!
