Hello! My name is Jeremy Grifski, and I run a software curriculum blog called The Renegade Coder. Currently, I'm a PhD student working on data visualization, but my blog largely covers beginner-oriented coding concepts in some of my favorite programming languages: Java and Python. All of my software content is free, and I hope to keep it that way. To support that mission, I'm looking for people like you who see the value in free software curriculum. 

In addition to blogging, I maintain a handful of open-source projects including a collection of code snippets in as many languages as possible. Your support goes a long way to ensuring these projects continue to be maintained.

At 10 patrons, I'll upgrade the Wordfence plugin to premium, so I'll never have to worry about any sort of malware on the site. That means increased uptime for you!
