I am Bert. I'm an open-source software developer specialized in XML technologies and accessibility.
In my free time I work on Liblouis, an open-source braille translation library for a large number of languages and braille codes, written in C. It is used in many products and if you're a braille user, odds are you have come across braille that was produced by Liblouis.
Liblouis is an important piece of software for a lot of products, but its development relies heavily on volunteer work, and our free time is limited. Besides me there is also my fellow maintainer Christian Egli from SBS, and there are a number of regular contributors. We all need each other to get the job done.
Your sponsorship will support me in my work maintaining Liblouis. With the extra revenue I can afford to invest more time in the project than I would otherwise. Your funds will also be spent on issue bounties as a way to reward other Liblouis contributors.
If you use Liblouis in your daily routine and it makes your life easier, you can show your appreciation by giving us a small tip. If you run a business or non-profit that benefits from Liblouis, consider sponsoring us a bit more generously to guarantee Liblouis stays healthy and actively maintained. Let us know if you'd like to sponsor us at a price we don't provide a tier for yet.
Sponsorship lasts only as long as you wish and you can cancel anytime. So if you want to do a one-time donation, you can. Also consider funding a Github issue of your choice through IssueHunt. This has the additional benefit that possibly more developers are attracted. Finally, you may also hire me to do a specific job. Get in touch and we'll try to work something out.
