Donating 10% of our time!

By Rob Gietema | On May 03, 2010
As of now every Four Digits employee should devote 10% of his or her time to improve Plone!

Looking back at the last couple of years we have been contributing a lot to the Open Source Community in general and Plone in specific. This includes Plone core-developement, add-on products development, dutch translations, visiting and giving talks at conferences and symposia. These contributions are made both during and after work hours. Up until now we encouraged coworkers to contribute but everybody could decide him/herself if he/she wanted to do so, nothing formal was agreed.

Following Google and Jarn who have similar agreements, every Four Digits employee should now devote 10% of his or her time to improve Plone! We believe by doing this we can make Plone even better and hope other companies will also consider similar agreements with their employees.
