Hey everyone, John Wilker, who you probably remember as the host of The Flex Show, has entered 360|Conferences into a community grant program sponsored by Chase.
360|Conferences is John's company and is most famous for 360|Flex and 360|iDev.
They need 250 votes to be considered for some money which will help him put on more conferences. At the time of this writing he needs 39 more votes.
John mentioned he wanted to use the money to put on more developer focused events. As a business owner myself, I understand how having some "reserve cash" in the bank can give you a lot of flexibility in the steps you take.
