Fabio Zadrozny, the primary developer behind PyDev has started a campaign on Indiegogo to fund continuing development of PyDev. In case you’re new to Python development, PyDev is a plugin for Eclipse that provides a nice Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for Python, Jython and IronPython in the Eclipse environment.
You can read about why Fabio decided to go the Indiegogo route for funding on his blog. While I personally don’t use PyDev, several of my co-workers really like it. I think supporting our fellow Python developers is a good thing, so if you have some extra cash to spare for a pretty great open source project, then you might want to support this campaign.
