Get involved

There are number of ways to become involved. You might wish to be involved as a user. Or a developer. Or a SharedSDS Foundation push-start sponsor. This is how:

Become a SharedSDS partner

Project strategy extends beyond all our lifetimes. We are now looking for one or more equal partners to join the SharedSDS team. Get in touch. Help build a very profitable enterprise with a 100 year business plan.
