Note: Even though I charge per "productive week" (see below), you can set a monthly cap, so you can give me as little as 1$ per month.

Hey,

My name is Jonathan Müller. I'm a computer science student at the RWTH Aachen University.

You probably know me as foonathan and from my blog or my projects. I'm currently working on standardese — a C++ documentation generator, memory allocators, a C++ AST parsing library and facilities for type-safe programming. I've also started a library for array based containers.

However, I need your help!

If you become a patron, this helps me in three ways:
  1. Money (obviously) — I'll be able to work more on my projects, buy new equipment, travel to more conferences and get some of those classical programming books I haven't read yet.
  2. Moral obligation — if you are actually supporting me here, I have a reason against being lazy and continue programming. This is great for both of us.
  3. Feeling of support — I'll see how many people like my projects, so I am more motivated. Plus, if you want to support a project specifically, you can do exactly that. I will take it in consideration when allocating my time.
But I will not always have time to work on them. That's why I'm not charging per month, but instead per "productive week". A productive week can be over in 7 days but it can also last a lot longer (it's usually more like two weeks). Everytime I feel like I've accomplished a lot — that's a productive week. So don't worry if I have an exam season, I won't charge you. But I also will never charge you more than once per week and you can set monthly caps.

If you won't become a patron, don't worry: I still listen to your issues and feature requests. But for a cup of coffee per month you could really make an impact.

Thank you all for your support!

Thanks so much for supporting me! I'll put your name up on http://foonathan.net/patrons and give you updates each productive week with a detailed summary of things I've done. More importantly, you get the great feeling of supporting a fellow developer. (Included in all other tiers)
memory Supporter
$4 or more per productive week 3 patrons
So you like memory allocators? I do too! That's why I have a library full of them - and your name will be in the readme.
cppast Supporter
$4 or more per productive week 0 patrons
You want to work with the C++ AST? Great, use cppast - the only parsing library with your name in the readme!
type_safe Supporter
$4 or more per productive week 1 patron
You are interested in the experiments I make (ab)using the C++ type system? Let everyone know with your name in the readme!
array Supporter
$4 or more per productive week 0 patrons
You think the containers provided by my array library are really useful? I'll give you a shout-out in the readme!
standardese Supporter
$4 or more per productive week 1 patron
You are a proud user of standardese and wish there was a way to show that? Well, this is a way to have your name in the readme!
foonathan Special Supporter
$8 or more per productive week 0 patrons
Wow, you really like what I do? Amazing! I'll give you a special thanks in the readme of the project(s) of your choice. Thank you!

You are a really, really huge fan of my work? Then I'll put your name/logo + link (software related) at the start of the readme of the project(s) of your choice. Thank you so much!
Goals
$43 of $50 per productive week
If I ever reach this goal, I'll look into getting my own CI servers to enable faster and better development, more extensive compiler checking, etc.  Thank you so much!
