On December 15th, 2018 my mom passed away. In trying to cope with the loss, I decided to work on something as a tribute to her. It had to be something that I enjoy spending time on so that I can always turn to it to keep her in my thoughts and stay positive.

One thing I've enjoyed for a long time is designing programming languages. So, I'm designing an open source programming language built around all of the things that make me enjoy programming, and I'm dedicating it to her. Her name was Bonnie, but everyone called her Bon, so that is the name of the language.

The reason I'm asking for support is because I'm an entrepreneur that is supporting a wife and 2 year old son on very little money, and some funding would allow me to dedicate time to this project every week.

I'm still working out the details, but I've pushed the first prototype to GitHub. Thank you for reading, and considering supporting this very personal tribute.

A small gesture that let's me know that people care. There are no specific benefits other than that I will be prompt in responding to any of your questions.

Key Supporter
$10 or more per month

Your contribution will be key to ensuring that this project gets the support that it deserves. As a thank you, I'll give you:

* Early access to design materials as they are being worked on

* A one-time invitation to a live coding session

Selfless Human Being
$50 or more per month

This kind of support would be very heartwarming, and I'll do my best to make it worthwhile to you as well. Among other yet decided perks, you will get:

* Early access to design materials as they are being worked on

* Monthly invitations (at minimum) to live coding sessions

* Weekly chat based Q&A sessions where you can ask any and all questions

* A one-time video chat Q&A session (possibly with more to follow)

Goals
$19 of $500 per month
When this goal is reached, I will build, launch, and maintain a dedicated site for the Bon programming language, including an official package repository.
