About KameSame

👋 Hello! My name is Justin and I'm the creator and lead maintainer of KameSame, a Japanese learning app and companion to WaniKani. (For more information about the story behind KameSame, you might check out this talk I gave at RailsConf, or visit our community thread.)

This Patreon's purpose is not to fund development of new features to KameSame—I'm plenty motivated to work on those myself.

Rather, the goal here is to just defray the monthly server costs, which—thanks to how much everyone loves using KameSame every day—currently total about $60 per month. After Patreon & the IRS take their cut, that means I'm shooting for $100 per month to fund the continued operation of the site. Given that we have 2500 users, that means I'd only ever expect a small amount from each contributor each month.
