Become a sponsor to Saar Drimer

For a long time I've been thinking of how to support my open source work in a sustainable way. 'GitHub Sponsors' could be the way.

I'm particularly excited about continuing my work on PCBmodE — a PCB design tool with a twist — that needs to be enhanced and packaged in a way that's accessible to more people. Part of this will be creating tutorials and keeping documentation comprehensive and up-to-date.

I'd also like to continue releasing open source circuit boards (many are available here), open source photography (like these), art, and writing.

By supporting me your contribution will go towards work that will be released under an open source license. This will apply to artistic output, photography, circuit boards, writings, and, of course, software development. Some of the funds will naturally go towards expenses such as equipment, materials, and digital subscriptions (such as Adobe CC) that's related to this work. If you're supporting via the PCBmodE-specific tiers your contributions will only go towards PCBmodE dev.

Your kind support will allow me to focus more on what I love doing, which will hopefully also result in things that are useful to you, or that you enjoy. Let's make this work ;)

20 sponsors are funding saardrimer’s work.

@saardrimer

It's real, getting a new sponsor is a great motivator to keep going with my open source development, particularly now when things are slower than usual (for me, at least). Knowing that there are people out there that appreciate my work enough to sponsor it without getting a direct 'product' is amazing and I keep thinking about it when I work (and when I'm not!) GitHub Sponsors just released a feature to set goals, so here's mine: 42 sponsors, because it's a nice number. Oh, GitHub will also match any $ you sponsor!
