U8 is an open and global service capable to evolve with your contributions. In every moment, any developer can start with a minimal S8 image customized for U8 platform. Any new development will be derived from an image, which eventually, could be the minimal S8 image for U8 or another developer's image. A new derived image is a fork (MIT License) allowing to share and learn "with" other people.

Promote development of S8 Frameworks

S8 platform is the minimum set to run smalltalk on javascript execution engines. The major benefit of using S8 is not constrained to it contents. The existence of mature frameworks is the key to avoid limitations on scaling to medium sized application development. We have an interesting set of tested frameworks available to let you start application development w/o scaling limitations imposed by médium/low level code. We also want to promote the attitude of sharing tested frameworks with U8 users. We encourage U8 users to share and maintain frameworks for development with S8 in all platforms.

Bitcoin Exchenge

Contribute with bitcoins

Social development with U8 is supported by bitcon exchange. An U8 user profile can be associated with a bitcoin wallet, allowing bitcoin transfers between users. By default, Smalltalking will be the donation receiver for users with no bitcoin wallet associated.

We use bitcoin as exchangeable resources to promote development of features and goodies for U8

People interested in new features can promote development donating bitcoins. The receiver will be aware of who is donating, allowing sustainable relatioship between people. Users can transfer bitcoins to your wallet to promote dedication on the software you are working on.

You can transfer your bitcoins to promote advances in development of software you need for your business

If you don't have enough human resources to undertake a development, you can ask for new developments needed for your business. You can promote specific developments through U8 platform.


How to contribute. Why register

In order to interact with other people, its required to be registered. As registered user, you will be allowed to publish contributions, buy and receive brownies, as well as make questions to the authors, join development groups and help to enhance the platform. As a developer, eventually you will need to define a development as "ready to be published". You can achieve this doing a "final" save image. Finished developments will be published prior confrontation to [U8] Terms of Use; this final revision process will be accomplished by Smalltalking Association.
