About Indie Programmer

Hey everyone, Bryan here!  So it's been a while since I uploaded the very first episode of my programming series on YouTube back in mid 2013.  At the time I would have never believed that I'd be here more than 3 years later continuing to make programming videos online.  Everyone following this series has been so supportive and encouraging and I am very thankful for all of the positive feedback that I've received so far.

Why make a Patreon page?  This series has very much been a labor of love for me.  I have an innate interest and passion for programming and making games and had hoped that creating a tutorial series of this type would allow me to share that passion with others while also helping me put a little food on the table.  Fortunately with hundreds of thousands of combined views across the series I am able to say that this series has allowed me to share my interest with many of you, but unfortunately the financial return has been very bleak.  In fact the total amount of earnings gained from the last three episodes combined is less than $1.00.  


Now I'm sure no one can possibly claim after seeing figures like this that I'm in it for the money (haha!) but this truly is a dream of mine to somehow turn this labor of love into a somewhat reliable secondary source of income so that I could spend more time and energy creating the series!  So far I've relied on advertisements for any funds earned from the series, but advertisements don't work.  They're annoying and obtrusive, which I'm sure is the reason why..

91% of Indie Programmer's viewers are using AdBlock or a similar extension.

Hey, I don't blame you!  Part of producing content for tech-literate audiences (such as programmers!) is that most of them will block the ads that appear on your content.  The purpose of this Patreon is to provide a way to fund the series without relying on these ads, which is why (if you'll look at the milestones at the top left) I will be steadily removing all of the advertisements that appear on my tutorials as this campaign progresses! :)

Below is a list of the rewards you will receive from pledging your support for the series.  I've spent a lot of time considering these and I think you will really like them!




Goals
$12.59 of $55 per month
One of the main purposes of this Patreon is to eliminate my reliance on advertisements, so I will steadily be removing all of the ads from my content as contributions replace the funds they generate.
