A software developer that loves Free/Open Source Software and is trying to make a living out of it.
👋 A bit about me
I'm from Argentina but moved to Berlin (Germany) in 2011. My idea was to stay for 6 months, maximum 1 year, but hey, plans change. Now I made my life here (wife and daughter included) so I guess I will be staying for a while 🙂
🏗️ What am I working on
I guess if you reached this page, you already know some project I'm working on (or have worked on) and you want to support that, but in the off-chance that you are just an angel out there looking at random developers to support, you can check out the following sites where I publish my work:
- Home Page
- GitHub: Personal | Lunofono | noclick.me
- Dart/Flutter Pub
- Python PyPi
- Flickr (not really development but maybe you want to sponsor some other creative work 🙃)
I am the type of developer that when bumps into a bug in an open source project, tries at the very least to make a good bug report, with a reduced test case, and when possible even a patch. So I spend quite some time doing this, a type of work that is not easy to showcase, but extremely important in my opinion.
Currently I'm focusing on a media player app for toddlers and small children (Lunofono), that it is safe and easy to use for them and easy to manage for parents. Also privacy is a big goal. Besides the player, I want to provide parents with a good content creation tool too, so they can create their own content (I know my kid loves to look at family pictures and videos). The app is not published yet, but I will do so when I have an MVP.
I'm also developing a service to enlarge URLs so they are more self-descriptive (noclick.me).
💖 Sponsoring my work
I always made a living on software development, and always tried to keep as much of the software I write open source. But I also always worked as an employee in a company, as it is not always easy with companies that struggle to see the value of open sourcing code (while running 90% of open source software to make profit, of course).
I feel it is time to make a jump and at least try to make a living while doing open source, and writing meaningful software. I know it will be a hard jump, and that failure is very likely, but hey, I have to try, and I will be eternally thankful if you can sponsor my work.
I'm currently accepting sponsorship using the following platforms:
This is just to make supporter's lives easier. If you already use a sponsoring platform, I don't want to force you to sign-up to another one.
You should bear in mind that different platforms have different features and fees (so in the above list are sorted by preference order). Currently the only platform that have zero fees is GitHub Sponsors, so if you can, please use that one (but it doesn't currently have an option for one-time payments). If you want to know exactly what are the features and fees of different platforms, you can have a look at the summary I compiled.
