Following the last meeting Graham produced a funding proposal which Stuart took to the BCS SIGiST committee. The proposal was accepted and the BCS SIGiST committee has agreed to provide up to £3k of funding in the first year to support the development of domain/technique examples. Upon completion of each domain/technique example the authors will receive £200. Regular updates will be provided to the BCS SIGiST detailing how their sponsorship money for technique writing is being allocated and spent
The aim of pursuing funding is to gain a level of commitment from the
authoring group to the production of the domain/technique examples. To achieve
this pairing groups were agreed. The next step is to develop a plan for the year
