If you liked my blog posts or my other work, and want to throw money at it (thank you!), please read this: I'm a professional software developer. I'm currently employed, so I'm making more-than-decent money and don't require donations to make a living. That said, I'd be delighted to be able to live off my work: That's primarily pretalx, via hosted services, sponsored development, support contracts, and – yes – donations.
If you want to show your appreciation for a good blog post, please consider a donation to the (German) GFF or the EFF. I support both of these organisations, and more supporters would make me very happy.
If you want to support me living off open source, you have a couple of options:
- For recurring donations, I have a Patreon account and a Liberapay account.
- For one-off donations, PayPal is probably the best way to go, but I also have a ko-fi page.
- If you want to support pretalx specifically, please get in touch!
Thank you to everybody supporting me. Special thanks go to the people supporting me with recurring donations on Patreon or Liberapay, because it provides a measure of reliability and lets me plan with this income. Those include:
- Caroline Schmitt
- Fabian Koch
- Sebastian 'blinry' Morr
