Block B - Slot 4

Slot 4: 2:00 pm America/Los_Angeles - October 21, 2022

In this discussion we'll talk about how to better grow the Backdrop economy for those who are, or would like to be, dependent upon Backdrop to earn a living.

Also, we may also address how the community can best provide financial support and incentives to solve some of the big and complex problems that might otherwise be neglected.

I was once told by a Drupal colleague that he wasn't sure how seriously to take Backdrop until he saw businesses and developers that were dependent upon it's success for their livelihood.

We already have a number of developers in our community that make significant portions of their income working with Backdrop. But, in my view we need to see more Backdrop based businesses promoting Backdrop and helping to build it's infrastructure. 

Triplo has been working on a SASS idea based upon Backdrop CMS - https://simplo.site/

I'd like feedback on Simplo.site as a product AND as importantly, where it fits in the Backdrop community. I'd also like to hear more about how others are making a living by working with Backdrop and how we better support the Backdrop business community.
