I'm Gina, and I'm the creator and main developer of OctoPrint.
What is OctoPrint?
OctoPrint is the snappy web interface for your 3D printer that allows you to control and monitor all aspects of your printer and print jobs, right from within any browser on your network. It runs basically everywhere, from a Raspberry Pi to your gaming rig, can be easily extended thanks to a powerful plugin system, and is Free and Open Source Software.
Working on OctoPrint takes a lot of time and effort. The development of new functionality itself plus maintenance, bug fixing, testing, release preparations, reviews of contributed code and such alone is already a full time job when done right, and that even leaves out other coding unrelated tasks like writing documentation, community management, server administration etc.
Don't get me wrong, I really love doing this work, and I want to continue doing it! But I can't manage this de facto full time job next to an actual one. My work on OctoPrint used to be fully backed by a sponsor, but this is not the case any longer. So now I'm asking for your help to allow me to stay involved with OctoPrint as much as I am now!
You've seen what I've been able to accomplish over the past couple of years. If you enjoyed the ride so far, please consider supporting me as a patron so we can continue it together!
