About

Howdy, Howdy! I'm Chris!

I'm a software developer and overall pretty cool guy. I'm the author of Gooey, one of the most popular Python libraries on Github. I occasionally blog about software and other things at chriskiehl.com

Why do I need this?

Managing a popular open source project takes a lot of time and effort. In addition to regular feature development, issues need responded to, stack overflow questions needs answered, and documentation needs written. Since open source doesn't pay, I need your help!

How does it work?

Simple: you set up a monthly donation for any amount you feel comfortable. That helps cover my expenses and fund the time I spend on open source work. Everything I do, I share with you.

What’s in it for you?

Behind the scenes content. Gooey has years of development work behind it. Get access to some of the earliest plans. I also occasionally post "backstage" videos of the development process of whatever I'm working on. See all the gory details, mistakes, and missteps involved in delivering software!

Shout Out: You make things happen! You'll get a shout out on my site as well as in the project release notes

Personal Contact: For $50+ tiers, you get my contact info! Once per month, I'll hop on a call and spend an hour helping you with development. I receive a steady stream of emails from newbies asking for help getting started with Gooey. This is for you!

Sponsorship: $250+ tiers, I list your company's logo and information as a development sponsor at the top of all Gooey related content (README, PyPi, release notes, etc..).
