Six months have passed since we have started our program and we would like to announce the results as well as names of developers who will receive first batch of donations from CUBRID open source project.
The CUBRID Affiliates Program was a great success for sure! Originally we had planned to reward $3000 in total to top 3 projects. Over the course of the last six months we have discovered many useful open source applications written in various programming languages. Some of them have already become our affiliates by adding CUBRID Database support to their applications.
Considering the effort all individual developers have put into adding CUBRID support in their own or third-party applications (yes, we did accept developers who contributed CUBRID code to other open source projects), we have decided to reward all of them with at least $150 donation. Depending on the effort it took as well as additional contributions (issue reports, questions asked, blog posts, tutorials) made by each developer, the donation ranges from 150 USD to 500 USD.
We would like to thank all of the developers for their effort and willingness to support CUBRID open source database project one way or another. We are also extremely happy to be able to support them in return!
150 + 150

As you can see in the above table, the first 3 applications will receive donations of $500, $400 and $300 respectively. The rest contributors will receive a $150 donation each. The exception is the ART project where the developer Timothy Anyona has also contributed to Quartz Scheduler project. Thanks to him Quartz Scheduler now supports CUBRID Database.
The 14 applications that have become our affiliates come from all over the world, from 4 different continents and 14 different countries. In the image below, you can see how CUBRID has reached developers on a worldwide scale.
CUBRID Affiliates Program does NOT stop on this. We will continue to accept new open source projects as our Affiliates. If you develop or contribute to an open source project and you want to add CUBRID Database support, we will be very glad to help you and see you onboard! Please contact us by email to email@example.com and let us know about your project. We will be guiding you all the time by answering your questions, resolving encountered issues, and simply talking (join our IRC). Remember that CUBRID provides over 90% SQL compatibility with MySQL, so porting an app to CUBRID should be straightforward.
Once again thank you Lukas, Topnew, Grant, Timothy, Andrew, Kasper, Arsenio, Xiong He, Klaus, Azhari, Gabor, Jeremy, HyunJong, and Stefan for supporting our project! We will contact you by email regarding how you can receive the donation.
