About Avdi Grimm

My mission is to be invitation to dance. Is that an odd way to talk about creating software development training? Here's the thing: To me, programming is a beautiful way to play with different models of the world, to weave technology into shapes that enrich our lives, and best of all to communicate about our ideas with other people. That's a kind of dance, and my goal is to invite more people out to the center of the dance floor.

For over a decade I've been communicating the joy of code through blogs, podcasts, books, conference talks, courses, and screencasts. In that time I've been incredibly blessed by the support of the developer community. This Patreon is one way for me to continue doing what (I think) I do best: learning, synthesizing, explaining what I've learned, and in turn coaching others in the art of communicating technical concepts. 

In particular, these days I'm turning my attention towards new formats (like livestreaming and courses) and new subject matter (like JavaScript and containers). When your livelihood depends on product sales, these kinds of pivots can introduce a chicken/egg problem: In order to create new things (and still pay the bills) I need new revenue, but in order to get that new revenue I need to create the things. Patreon income is a way for me to bootstrap new concepts in developer training.
