Bounty Program


One of the goals of PLDN is to make free to use, lightweight, open source, linked data tools more sustainable via our PLDN community and governance activities.

One way of doing this, is to enlarge the pool of software developers that are involved in the development and maintenance activities for these lightweight linked data tools, to solve any issues and to develop new features for these tools. For the smaller activities this is done on a voluntary basis and for important issues and much desired new features, we would like to work via a bounty program, such that organizations can place bounties (financial rewards) for issues that they want to get solved or for new features that want to be developed.

Working this way, we would like to engage software developers that want to learn innovative new technologies and that have good experience with development in JavaScriptJavaScript is a high-level, dynamic, untyped, and interpreted programming language. It has been standardized in the ECMAScript language specification.7 Alongside HTML and CSS, it is one of the three essential technologies of World Wide Web content production; the majority of websites employ it and it is supported by all modern Web browsers without plug-ins. JavaScript is prototype-based with first-class functions, making it a multi-paradigm language, supporting object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles. It has an API for working with text, arrays, dates and regular expressions, but does not include any I/O, such as networking, storage, or graphics facilities, relying for these upon the host environment in which it is embedded./TypeScript and SCSS, have experience in structuring, querying and retrieving (linked) data and that want to work under the guidance of the gatekeeper for one of the tools. When a developer wants to claim a bounty, the gatekeeper is involved in the intake procedure of the candidate developer, he will monitor the progress and quality of the work activities and he will accept/reject the deliverables that are developed for a bounty issue. Working this way, more organizations and developers can become involved in the larger linked data community.
