Hey there, I'm Bastian (also known as batzen or batzendev)!

I'm an open source maintainer and contributor for many years now.
I started with contributing to open source in 2011, as far as i remember and became the core maintainer of Fluent.Ribbon in ca. 2012.

The libraries/apps i am the maintainer of:

The libraries i am one of the core maintainers of:

I also contribute to these libraries regularly:

  • MahApps.Metro - A framework that allows developers to cobble together a Metro or Modern UI for their own WPF applications with minimal effort.

Sponsoring is another way of saying "thanks" to the maintainers of open source projects. It doesn't take much to make a difference.
As I think of sponsoring as a "thanks" I won't offer any special treatment, like additional support or priority handling of issues, regardless of the sponsoring tier. This is to protect myself from feeling my open source work becomes real work.

Don't worry. You can cancel your sponsorship anytime, no questions asked :-)

Thank you,

– Bastian
