Zend Framework Survive The Deep End - Still Kicking )
February 10, 2009 @ 09:34:38

Padraic Brady has an update about his "Zend Framework: Survive the Deep End" book he's been self-publishing on his site including a change to his current donation set up.

In experimenting with making money (so I can buy that Macbook Pro) I'll be adding some changes to how donations work. One main change is that while the current PDF file for the existing chapters will remain available (including future updates), PDF files covering the entire book to date will only be available to those who donate.

The online HTML-only version of the chapters will always be free of charge, but the PDFs (from here on out) will be for those who donate. He is also considering adding screencasts to the series to provide a bit more interactive feel to the whole Zend Framework topic.

PHPWomen.org:
elePHPants
January 18, 2008 @ 07:56:00

To help "sweeten the deal" a bit and encourage you to give towards the causes that the PHP Women are trying to accomplish, they're offering a special little bonus for those who donate at a certain level:

Cal Evans from the Zend DevZone - being the awesome guy that he is - has graciously offered to mail out to the first 10 people who donate to PHPWomen $50 or more, a PHP elePHPant. Yep - you get one of the hard to find and much sought after plushy PHP elePHPants.

You can find out more about the goals for their fund raising in this other post to the PHPWomen.org blog as well as information on submitting whatever you feel like donating (time or money).

Support a Good Cause
January 16, 2008 @ 14:23:16

Feel like giving a bit back to something open source but aren't sure quite where to go? Well, the PHPWomen group is asking for donations to help further the women's group and its efforts:

As you know, we like to give out our free t-shirts at conferences to help spread the word about our group. [...] We also want to help out those who may be in need of training materials, help with the ZCE exam, or who want to speak at conferences, but may not afford to be able to do it.

They also have some other fund raising ideas in the works to help accomplish some of these goals too. You can also get involved and help out even if you don't have extra cash. Volunteer for the mentoring program or just offer a helping hand when they might need it.

Check out Elizabeth Naramore's blog post for more details.

Jim Plush's Blog:
MyBic Goes Charitable - Work an hour for the kids
April 25, 2006 @ 07:05:26

After having his MyBic PHP/Ajax framework, Jim Plush has decided to use some of this popularity to drive some charitable work for some underprivileged kids at a school that it wife works with. He specifically mentions some with more technology-related needs, such as a specialized left-handed keyboard.

So, how can I help, you ask yourself sitting there behind your keyboard? Well, it's simple, really - Jim has set up a CafePress shop with some great t-shirts for purchase - and 100% of the funds made from the shirts will go right back to the kids at the school.

Slogans on the shirts include:

  • "You're so Web 1.0"
  • "You should be tested for latency"
  • "I used XMLHttpRequest() when it was underground"
  • "I was going to put a bunch of cool tech words on this shirt, but you wouldn't know them anyway"

    When donations are made, the results of them will be shared with contributors via pictures of how they're actually helping.
