Feature Mob 2: Update

UPDATE: Feature Mob 2 is SOLD OUT

Mobile Web / Pentaho Business Intelligence "thank you" gift added!

In late August 2013, I announced our Feature Mob 2, our second generation program of building out features by crowd-sourcing development of xTuple PostBooks®.

The results to date have been exceptional — we've nearly reached our goal, and in record time. But some of you requested an interim funding level between $1,000 and $5,000, and perhaps an added perk, or reward, to go along with it. Some of you even asked for it by name — help setting up the new Mobile Web and Pentaho Business Intelligence components for your local xTuple server. That's a service just rolled out with version 4.1, and it's very much in demand.

As is always the case around here, we listened! And, you can see what levels may still be available by the rewards chart below. (I say "may" as all sponsorships are first-come, first served!)


Your added perk includes installation of the full server infrastructure to support the new Mobile Web client and Pentaho BI tools (which normally sells for $6,000). And, happily for our $5,000 and $10,000 level sponsors, they receive the added reward, too. What's not to love?

There are still plenty of sponsor opportunities at the $100, $250 and $500 levels as well. Remember, the $500 level gets you a seat at xTupleCon 2014, and based on the response to this year's inaugural xTupleCon (SOLD OUT!), that will be a very hot ticket!

In case you missed it, here's the official announcement — to see how you can contribute and collect some truly awesome thank-you gifts!

Ned Lilly

President and CEO
In October 2001, Ned co-founded xTuple, originally called OpenMFG, with the aim of bringing the worlds of open source and enterprise resource planning (ERP) together to solve the unmet needs of small- to mid-sized manufacturers. In 1999, he was a co-founder of Great Bridge, an early business built around the PostgreSQL open source database. PostgreSQL is the core technology for xTuple today. Great Bridge was incubated inside Landmark Communications, a mid-sized media company where Ned directed corporate venture investments, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and startup activity. Prior to Landmark, Ned worked for a regional technology group in Washington D.C. and had a brief first career in political media — television, radio and a non-partisan news wire. He holds a B.A. from the University of Virginia and an M.A. from George Washington University.
