I contribute to open source in my free time.

Why sponsor me

By sponsoring me, you're sponsoring a member of underrepresented group in the open source space. Your sponsorship allows me to continue contributing to Python, give more talks, write more blog posts, provide 1:1: mentorship, and to further build the community. You'll also be helping with my own personal health and wellbeing, avoiding burnout, and take more time for self care.

Current projects and community involvements

  • CPython, specifically the core-workflow, GitHub bots, Devguide and general documentation
  • Python Language Summit 2021, as the co-chair for the third time.
  • PyLadies as global advisor, administrator, moderator, and organizer
  • gidgethub
  • speaking at conferences and Meetups: PyCascades 2021, PyConBy 2021, Pyninsula Feb 2021, PyLadies IWD event 2021, etc.

For my contributions to Python, I've received the Community Service Award from Python Software Foundation. I've also been nominated twice for
Google Open Source Peer Bonus program. I'm a PSF Fellow member since 2020. In honor of Ada Lovelace Day in 2020, my story was shared on GitHub ReadME project.

If you find my open source contributions valuable, please consider sponsoring me.

Stop sponsoring anytime

I understand your situation can change. You can stop sponsoring me anytime, guilt free, no questions asked.
I appreciate your sponsorship, but please take care of yourself too.

40 sponsors are funding Mariatta’s work.

@Mariatta

In the past year, I've lost about half of my GitHub sponsorship income, and it has been personally demotivating. Throughout the pandemic, I've continued contributing to open source, building my community (PyLadies Vancouver and Global), organizing community events like Python Language Summits and Core Dev Sprints, speaking and giving tutorials at conferences. I'm hoping I could regain more sponsors to keep the fire going and to keep me motivated. Why 518? In Chinese language, 518 sounds like 我要發, which means "I am going to prosper", so it sounds like a good lucky number to me 😊 I also think that it a very reasonable and achievable goal. I'd be happy if you can help me reach this goal!
