By day I'm lucky enough to be paid to work upon open source code- creating MIT-licensed libraries for dozens of sensors as part of my role at Pimoroni. These are mostly written in Python and aimed at the Raspberry Pi platform.
In my spare time I created and maintain pinout.xyz, a one-stop source for Raspberry Pi pinout documentation both for the Pi itself and many add-on boards.
Somewhere in a precarious balance between work and spare time I contribute to the maintenance of open-source libraries including rpi_ws18x, py-spidev, luma and others.
Sponsorship helps me to dedicate more of my time to open-source hobby projects and software that doesn't directly relate to what I do at Pimoroni. It also helps me afford the hardware and furniture I need to build a home lab in which I can hide and churn out awesome things.

Just $1 a month makes more difference than you might imagine. In addition to giving me a morale boost, it helps acrue funds earmarked for keeping my tools-of-the-trade up to date instead of spent on food, bills & kids.

This does the maths makes you 3x as awesome and will go far toward aiding me in my quest to kit out a home lab for maximum tinkering.
