I'm a full-time open source developer.
My open source projects...
- make the Web safer and more private.
- make developer lives easier.
- preserve personal and family history.
- Timeliner downloads all your digital life onto a single timeline, stored locally
- are often used in humanitarian and non-profit efforts.
- PEPFAR uses Caddy to collect medical data in the field
- The United Nations, Wikimedia, and several other public agencies use Papa Parse to process data
My primary work is the Caddy web server. Caddy has:
📄~1 million TLS certificates under management ⏬2 million downloads 🐳20 million Docker pulls 🔐110 million TLS connections secured 📈1.1 TRILLION ‼️HTTPS requests served
That's a lot of public good for a free project maintained by ~1 developer! Thankfully, Caddy has over 250 contributors. But coordinating that effort takes a lot of time and energy, so I now accept sponsorships to help fund ongoing maintenance of my projects.
Your sponsorships make a difference because although open source work can be satisfying, it is often a drain on mental, emotional, and physical energy. In addition to making full-time development possible, sponsors provide much-needed relief, leading to happier, healthier, less-stressed developers.
My goals for my projects are:
- Make a lasting, positive impact
- Foster a sense of community and goodwill
- Improve your quality of life
Get behind those values with me: sponsor these projects, or champion a sponsorship within your company/organization, for a better Web.
