The first round of our Beanstream’s Open Source Code Bounty Challenge was a huge success! Stay tuned for our blog post on our Java Bounty contributors. We are now launching our second round of code bounties, this time for PHP. If you are a fan of open source software and would like to contribute to an open source project then sign up, we would love to have you on board. You will get paid for your work too!
Our hope is that by you helping us to develop and release an SDK, we will not only release an SDK that meets your needs but that you will become an active participant in guiding the software that works before for your projects. To make our goal a reality, we will open-source the SDKs and offer bounties for implementing various aspects of the Beanstream APIs.
So far we have a reference C# .NET SDK built and a Java SDK almost complete. So there is lots of existing code and documentation for you to refer to as you build out the PHP SDK.
The signup page lists the bounty’s details: the task, deliverables, and the rewards ranging from $150-$400. You can select what ones you are interested in and review how much coding will be involved. Most tasks are reasonably small and would take at most one day to complete. If you think of a feature that should be added to the bounty list and isn’t there, tell us and we might just add it and give you its bounty.
If you are interested in helping with the PHP SDK head to the signup page and fill in your information. We are looking for several developers of all skill levels to contribute so don’t hesitate. And if you haven’t contributed to open source projects before, don’t worry! We will get you started and help you through the whole process.
