About Bora M. Alper

Hey there!

I'm Bora, a 22 years old FOSS developer, and computer science student in The University of Edinburgh. I've been creating free (& open-source) software for all and giving away for free because I believe that software (being intangible) should be treated as a scarce product while it can be reproduced at 0 cost, once being developed. Nonetheless, developing software takes time and tremendous effort, and life in UK is quite expensive. If you appreciate what I have done in the past, and my ambition of a decentralised, mutualistic future, you can help me to continue by your donations.
