CMS Made Simple is Looking for PHP Developers


With 2.0's upcoming alpha release coming very soon, we're looking for a few more PHP coders to add to the ranks of our motley crew of developers to help to push it along a little faster. Do you have the PHP5, OO and MySQL skills to join us? We sure hope so. Sound interesting? Read on.

With 2.0's upcoming alpha release coming very soon, we're looking for a few more PHP coders to add to the ranks of our motley crew of developers to help to push it along a little faster. Do you have the PHP5, OO and MySQL skills to join us? We sure hope so. Sound interesting? Read on. Times have changed. Before, when we wanted to pull a new developer in, we had to either have them send patches, or give them commit access to the main repository. With the latter, if they screwed up too badly, we were stuck trying to fix the problem (or living with bad code). However, 2.0 is taking a friendlier approach to new developers. Development of 2.0 is using Git source code management and taking place on Github. Why change things? Because this gives us the ability to "try out" developers without having any issues or even real management. The idea is simple: If you're interesting in working on 2.0, you can create an account on GitHub and fork the repository. You can hack away as much as you want. When you're finished and want me to look at it, you can just do a pull request. Then, I can review the patch, decide if it's ok (or needs some work) and merge it into the main repository if it's ready. If you decide that it's not for you, you can just remove your fork and I'll never be the wiser. Developers that consistently give us some great code will be considered for the dev team going forward, so give us your best work. If you're interested and want something to work on, either talk to me (Ted) in the irc channel (#cms on freenode) or send me a message through GitHub. I look forward to hearing from you.
