I'm really excited for the future of Django REST framework - there's so much more that can still be done in order to improve the state of Web API tooling. This Kickstarter campaign is going to let us take things to the next level, and I can't wait to get started!

On 17th July DabApps' Technical Lead, Tom Christie, launched a Kickstarter campaign to develop Django REST framework 3.

The response has been AMAZING with almost £30k pledged in the first 15 days of the campaign.

Tom says:

For many businesses Django REST framework has become an important part of their infrastructure. It has been a privilege to see so many companies and individuals working together to help finance its development.

All credit goes to Tom for the many hours of development he has put into REST framework over the last 3 years.

He is the main author behind this open-source project and, as is evidenced by the response to the Kickstarter campaign, has created a powerful and highly popular development tool that businesses such as Eventbrite (a 'Platinum sponsor') rely on.

We are proud to support Tom in this project knowing that a large community of developers will benefit from his work.
