Free and open-source software plays a big part in our lives.
I cannot think of doing my work with some of the free tools that are available due to the hard and dedicated work people have put in.

Sign up and become a sponsor for Sander on GitHub today to support his work!

What’s in it for me?

  1. Make a difference. Sponsoring your favorite open source maintainers is an excellent way to give back to your favorite project.
  2. Be heard. Becoming a sponsor confirms that my work really matters to you, and will grant you some control over how I prioritize my work.
  3. Keep it alive. Sponsorship helps your favorite projects to continue being maintained, and thus your personal and professional workflows to live longer.
  4. Less bureaucracy. At your workplace, contributing to GitHub is not always possible due to licensing and trade secrets. Becoming a sponsor takes less time than hour-long discussions with legal.
  5. Cancel anytime. End your sponsorship anytime you like – no questions asked.

Who am I, and why do I do this?

I’m Sander, database administrator and a huge PowerShell and automation fan.
I'm a big open-source fan. I'm a contributor to the dbatools project and work on maintaining, fixing and creating new commands.
I also maintain the PSDatabaseClone project that makes it possible to create clones from SQL Server databases.

With all that I also travel to various SQL Server and data related events to present about these projects.
Sharing my knowledge about PowerShell and SQL Server is something I enjoy very much.

I’ve joined GitHub Sponsors because in the past people have asked me how they could sponsor me. Thanks to this there is a platform that can help with that without all the fuzz.

What if you choose not to sponsor me?

We will still be friends and I will not hold a grudge. I'm going to treat as the first-class GitHub citizen you are.

Why sponsor me (and not someone else)?

Personally I think there are other people who deserve your sponsorship.

Sponsor someone you like and who will have an impact on you.
As the GitHub Sponsors feature gains traction, pick your favorite people later as they become available.
