 +===== Coding =====
 +
 +      * Know or want to know PHP and or MySQL. Jump on the [[http://www.simpleinvoices.org/forum|forum]] or check out our [[roadmap]] to see whats planned for future development. If you can lend a hand coding its always greatly appreciated.
 +      * Note: for those interested in Simple Invoices development I suggest a quick read of the following links

 +        * Got an idea you want to code but its not on our list or forum. Go for it!!! Just because we havent thought about it or bugged it doesnt mean it shouldnt get done (alot of Simple Invoices dev is stuff someone thought about at 2am in the morning and just started coding). Just keep in mind the above reading: have fun and keep it simple.
 +
 +===== Donating =====
 +
 +Simple Invoices has minimal expenses and those are covered by http://sixhq.com & http://smarterinvoices.com.  We used to have a paypal donate button - but was taken off as I would prefer to keep Simple Invoices.org as 'money-free' as possible.
 +
 +If you do have money that you would like to donate the best options are to either buy some Google Ads or Reddit Ads or something similar to help spread the word
