Become a sponsor to David



Trondheim, Norway

This sponsors page was created to support Javalin (repo).

Javalin is a passion project which offers an alternative to commercial JVM web frameworks like Spring, Quarkus, Micronaut, etc. As Javalin's primary maintainer, I'm responsible for the development of Javalin itself, the Javalin webpage, tutorials, surveys, and marketing materials. As Javalin is a part time project, there is not a lot of time to focus on each of these areas, and it would be great to have some sort of budget.

The primary goal of this sponsors page is not for me to quit my job to work on Javalin, but to cover expenses and to be able to afford to hire help every now and then, and maybe to give out t-shirts and other swag to the people who contribute to the project.


I would like to be able to buy some merch (t-shirts, hoodies, posters, etc) for the most active contributors, as well as flyers and stickers to give away at conferences and meetups.
