I also write blogs and tech tutorials

And conduct free meetups and workshops for the local community

All of this community and voluntary work involves a lot of planning, active code maintenance, bug fixes, and promotion. If you or your company use any of my projects or like what I’m doing, please consider backing me so I can continue maintaining and working on these projects and new ones. Your pledge could be as small as $1/month. I'd really appreciate your support!

Thank you so much.
