Hi! My name is Brad, and I love free open source software. That's why when I created Numu Tracker for iOS, I decided to make it fully open source and free of charge. That said, building, running, and maintaining the app is not entirely free for me, so I'm asking you to help support me while I create Numu and other projects.

Your support will to go toward the hosting and production costs for Numu Tracker, Aeon Garden, and as encouragement for me to write tutorials and possibly make videos about iOS / Swift development. I am also thinking about starting a weekly newsletter with personal recommendations for various types of media for people who want a little direction for their media consumption!

Who am I?

My name is Brad Root, and I've been building websites and running blogs for around two decades now--a double-edged sword of a statement that both paints me as knowledgable, but also pretty old. Some people might know me better as Stuyvesant Parker. In the late 2000's, I ran a music blog under that pseudonym called ſtaires! an adventure in listening where I wrote about ~400 of my favorite songs.

I started building apps a couple years ago, my first iOS app was Numu Tracker, an app that helps you keep track of music you need to listen to, and alerts you to new releases and additions. I'm currently working on a second app, a cross-platform artificial life screensaver / toy called Aeon Garden. Both these projects are fully open source and licensed under the Mozilla Public License v2. You can find the code for these projects on my GitHub profile.

I also have a blog at Amiantos.net where I write about programming

Your support will encourage me to create more open source apps, and give back to the community in any way I can. Thanks for your consideration!
