About Alexandru Nedelcu

I'm the original author of Monix, a Scala and FP library for composing asynchronous programs. I'm a major contributor to Cats Effect and the Typelevel ecosystem. I write technical blog posts at alexn.org, and you can also find me on GitHub and Twitter.

My goal with Patreon is to cover operational expenses:

  • the domain name (monix.io) costs currently $34.88 per year
  • hosting costs, $180 per year on DigitalOcean: a droplet with 2 GB RAM, used to serve the website, along with self-hosted analytics (Matomo), and soon I might add a comments forum
  • I also have a personal IntelliJ IDEA license, a Vimeo account, and other tools and services which help me develop and promote my OSS work

It's not expensive, but I have services, several domain names, and projects I maintain, which add up. Given this is a labor of love, consuming my free time, it would be great not to pay out of my pocket. I also like coffee ☕️

I'm looking forward to having more fun and supporting my fellow maintainers and contributors from the Typelevel community.

Any help is appreciated.
