My greatest respect to the Yii Team. I am curious how is Yii business operated and who is funding the development? How can someone spent so much energy and time on something as great as this?

I believe Qiang runs Yii Software LLC, a consultancy that provides Yii training and develops Yii based apps for hire.

Maybe it's the same line of thought - they develop and use them for their own (paid) work, and share it in the spirit of free and open source, returning something to the community that they have benefitted from and perhaps to get a little (or a lot of) name recognition.

As for me, noone pays me for development of Yii itself but:
1. I'm sort of addicted to Yii and OpenSource since it's a lot of fun and it feels right.
2. When I've started developing Yii I was working fulltime on J2EE projects. This year I've changed my employee for CleverTech and the company uses Yii as the main platform for client applications. I'm still not paid for core Yii development but paid for developing using Yii. So Yii is my primary tool now. As I know that's true for all current core team members (you can find company names googling a bit).

Managing OpenSource community doesn't require too much money but it's true about time.

Well, I can certainly say that writing a book isn't about earning money but rather is about helping people. Of course, if you're J. K. Rowling you can make a good money as well :)

Yeah, we have to buy cookies and drinks ourselves. Personally I don't mind spending all my time developing Yii, writing books and articles about it but have to earn a living for myself and my family.
