One of the main goals of raising funds is to create a platform for people aspiring to learn, grow, and contribute. We have larger aspirations of a fully paid internship program and still maintain that as a long-term goal. But, our funding is not there yet.
I was approached by someone seeking an opportunity to do some contributed work and to learn more about the Drupal community/technology. I would like to introduce you all to Rahul Baisane. Rahul will be helping get SimplyTest.me ready for Drupal 8. His first goal was to port the Tugboat QA module, as seen here. Rahul will be compensated for this work and has done an amazing job of getting this first step for the Drupal 8 backend moving. I look forward to working with him to advance SimplyTest and encourage you all to reach out to him for other opportunities.
