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 (Jan 5, 2018):

  • after relaunch, fixing bugs and refining layout. Still many issues to fix — we listen to your feedback carefully,
  • reached 492 Smashing members after 39 days, with 12 supporters, 289 members and 191 smashers. Total: $3200 per month. You made it happen, so thank you.
  • published Front-End Performance Checklist 2018, with checklists as PDF and Apple Pages publicly,
  • made Heydon Pickering's Inclusive Design Patterns eBook freely available to everybody,
  • ran a free session on Keeping A Healthy Work-Life-Balance with Denys Mishunov. Download recording,
  • arranged eBooks for Prjctr, a school for design and development in Kiev, Ukraine.
  • arranged printed books for WomenGoTech, an initiative in Vilnius, Lithuania.

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 want to squash the bugs before moving to the next steps — a Spectrum community for meaningful discussions. Next steps:

  • fix as many bugs as possible, and move to stable release,
  • continue working on Smashing Book 6 and Smashing Print,
  • announce new Smashing TV webinars with Mike Riethmueller and Sarah Drasner,
  • 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.
