Beta Launch

Hello Everyone,

The beta of OpenSourceFor.me will be launching Sept. 17th! All your reward vouchers will be sent out than as well!

Thanks,
Matt

We did it!

Hello Everyone,

I would like to thank all of you for making this a successful kickstarter campaign. I've been pushing out work on the site and you will be seeing a beta launch mid-september. At that time everyone who has rewards will be given codes to redeem them! I look forward to helping everyone reach their potential with all the new web based projects! 

Thanks,

Matt

A little over a week

Hello Everyone,

I want to thank everyone for their support thus far. We have a little over a week and I can't thank you all enough for your donations and kind words. As I stated before this project will launch regardless if/when it gets funded. All current donors will have unlimited free access to the system. Keep your eyes peeled in the coming weeks for the site to go fully live:

http://opensourcefor.me

The website is currently blocked off to users as development continues. You may catch a few glimmers of it becoming active by the first week of September if all goes according to plan with funding. Without it you should expect it towards the end of September (with a few features stripped away, but the core idea intact).

Thanks again,

Matt

System Update

I know a lot of you have been eager to see actual proof of the site. So I've taken a few screenshots to show you how the system is progressing and how it will work!

Homepage-Just the top of the homepage with menu items

Ask - A yahoo q/a style community help/support

Learn - The learning system for all the lessons (this has been the big time consumer and not nearly complete yet)

Please see screenshots below!

Quick Update

Hello Everyone,

Would just like to first start off by thanking all of the current and future backers. Seeing a notification popping up with a new backer is one of the most energizing and encouraging things to see. I'd like to give you an idea of where I am currently at.


-Videos are being recorded and reviewed for improvements (biggest time consuming effort)
-Features for the website are being worked out (learning program, discussion features etc)
-Skeleton of the website has been developed and being tweaked and worked on
-Working with partners to help lighten cost for hosting and other necessary tools for our users

I'd also like to say that we are moving forward with great progress. I will keep updates more constant to give you all an idea of where I am at. One other important fact is if funding is unsuccessful I will still be developing the site (time frames may be greatly extended though and functionality will be scaled back) but all of the backers will have unlimited and free access to the site for throwing your support behind this project.

Thanks,

Matt
