About

Hi! My name is David Barri, online handle @japgolly.
(TwitterGithubBlog)

I create lots of Scala and FP stuff and give it away for free. Open-source software, contributions to other open-source software, and educational material in the form of blog posts and talks. I do this out of love, passion and enthusiasm, and it makes me happy to see that I'm bringing happiness to the lives of others.

Unfortunately (lack of) money has become a significant factor. Over the last 5 years, I've spent a total of more than a full year to create content and share it free. I've done so without any monetary compensation, and at the sacrifice of other work that would compensate me monetarily. This covers both fun stuff and non-fun stuff like library maintenance. I'm now in a situation where I cannot justify working for free to myself or my family. One example consequence is that I will not be able to add React 16 support to scalajs-react for a long while.

If you like what I do and you'd like to support me or any of my projects, become a patron! It will make a difference to me and help further more development and creativity.
