Alexandru Nedelcu is creating Monix, the Scala library for composing async programs
12
patrons
I'm the original author of Monix, a Scala and FP library for composing asynchronous programs. I'm also a major contributor to Cats-Effect and the Typelevel ecosystem.

My goal with Patreon are modest, to cover operational expenses with Monix:

  • domain name costs currently $34.88 per year
  • hosting costs, currently $72 per year, cheapest instance at DigitalOcean

It's not expensive, but I have several domain names and projects I maintain and it adds up. Given this is a labor of love, entirely on my free time, it would be great to not have to pay out of my pocket.

Not sure how well this Patreon thing will go, but if it does I intend to:

  • support Typelevel speakers with supplies of Monix stickers 🙂
  • invest in an Intel Vtune license, or other tools that would help in optimizing Monix and Cats-Effect

We delivered Cats-Effect 1.0.0 on Sep 6th, 2018, so now working on finalizing Monix 3.0.0, which has improvements across the board to Task, Observable and introduces Iterant, a new data type for pull-based streaming.

Any help is appreciated.
