Project Update

As part of the DEV Grant, we ran a successful hackathon in partnership with GftW.

This involved various announcement threads, help threads, emails, social posts, etc. The winning submissions were extremely impressive.

As part of the hackathon, we also added payment pointer functionality to Forem, the open-source code that powers DEV and other inclusive communities — such as this one!

More information on that update here.

Finally, we shared an update regarding the Web Monetization Community here.

We have completed the objectives outlined in our Grant, but we look forward to continuing to support the Web Monetization ecosystem, and to seeing this community flourish.
