Hi, I’m Jens and I’m a web developer who’s been in the field since 1999. During that time I’ve learned a lot, I’ve built a lot, and I’ve early on shared my experiences and principles. Some of them on my website, meiert.com, some of them in my books, and some of them elsewhere, like at A List Apart, Smashing Magazine, and German heise and iX.

If you made it here you’re probably already familiar with my work. I should, perhaps, prepare a little overview page, or some video as Patreon suggests, but as we’re among like people the following may do for a moment:


What you may notice is that pretty much all of this is free. It’s free to a large part because I love what I’m doing and because I benefit much from other people’s work that they likewise share for free.

Now my own work wasn’t really free if I would ask for anything in return (or was it). But as much as I believe in sharing and giving back, I don’t believe that the Web works with a conception that everything must be excellent, has to be free, and may otherwise be yelled at. This conception, giving birth only to ad-blocking perma-nitpickers, destroys the Web. Yet, I don’t want to lecture here:

I only wish to suggest that it’s an option to acknowledge people’s work, especially when they share it for free (even, but mileage may vary, when it’s not all flawless).

Please point out issues in my work (on meiert.com, I run a small quality program that pays or donates for issues found), and consider, if my code or writings helped or delighted you, whether either means something you like to support, so that I can do more of it, for you. That’s what this page is about.

Thank you!
