Hi, my name is Christian Lück, but most people around here would know me as @clue (I've been lucky with my initials). Among others, I'm a maintainer of ReactPHP, a public speaker and Freelance Software Engineering Consultant. I enjoy working with all things web, I'm passionate about coaching others building awesome things, pushing the limits and connecting the dots…

Why sponsor me

Do you love working with open-source? ❤️ So do I! This is why I've quit my regular job a few years ago and now enjoy spending my time on all things @ReactPHP and pushing the limits of what PHP can be used for. 🐘 📈 As an open-source enthusiast, I enable others building awesome projects. I care about high-quality, reliable projects and enjoy pushing the limits.

If you use @ReactPHP or any of my other projects in your daily work and feel that it has made your life easier, please consider buying me a coffee snack once in a while so I can focus on solving outstanding tickets! 🍬

If you run a business and you're using @ReactPHP or any of my other projects in a revenue-generating product, it makes business sense to sponsor this development: it ensures the projects that your product relies on stay healthy and actively maintained and it can also help your exposure in the community. On top of this, I offer direct one-on-one support in higher sponsorship tiers, so you don't have to wait for a best-effort reply on a public question and because we all know some things are best addressed in private.

Unfortunately, as much as I love working on open-source, this does not currently allow me to pay my rent. That's why I try to combine my open-source efforts with custom software engineering consulting. While my consultancy and professional services allow me to pay my bills, it often means I can not focus on my open-source projects. If you want to support my ongoing efforts and ensure my work results in sustainable open-source, consider becoming a sponsor!

Having more diverse sponsors will allow me to focus on open-source work and become more independent of traditional, paid client projects that would otherwise take away some attention. Supporting me and my work will allow me to invest a lot more time into open-source development and help the community get the tools they need and deserve.

I'm a registered freelancer in Germany (Freiberufler) and can provide proper invoices including VAT as applicable for all B2B contracts outside of GitHub. If you want a quick and easy way to sponsor my work, consider becoming a sponsor here on GitHub. If you care about EU VAT invoices or want a custom package, check out my website for more details.
