Drupal Association members fund grants that make connections all over the world.
I've been using Drupal since 5.1 and built a premium membership site previously with Ubercart. That was all fine & dandy but I've got a new project that will need affiliate commissions on monthly subscriptions. It seems like UC is getting long in the tooth and Drupal Commerce is the clear future - but the affiliate options on DC seem pretty bare. I loathe to think this but perhaps Wordpress along with a paid plugin is better for a premium membership site with better affiliate program features? Someone please tell me otherwise, I'd much rather stick to Drupal.
