Hi! I'm a self-employed developer building MODX extras at modmore. When not working on modmore extras, I work on one of my 20+ open source extras, including ones you've probably used, like ClientConfig, VersionX, Gitify, and ImportX. 

I'm also actively involved with the open source MODX core project as a contributor (158 PRs and counting), integrator, and also as one of only 2 so-called code owners in the world. Being code owner means that every single pull request that anyone makes, has to be approved either by Jason "opengeek" Coward, or yours truly.

If neither of us approves a pull request, it simply can't get merged by the other integrators. 

That's a lot of responsibility, and also a lot of work. There have been a lot more pull requests coming in lately (in part due to the effort on MODX 3), which all need to be carefully reviewed and tested.

It's a never-ending job, as the pull requests just keep coming. Sometimes it's a game of whack-a-mole: review 5 pull requests, only to have 5 new ones come in overnight. 

Why Patreon?

I'm fortunate enough to make a living from my paid extras, and I have a decent amount of control over how I spend my productive time, but I also have so much work on my plate that extras actual clients are paying for often takes priority over open source.

By supporting me on Patreon, you're supporting my work for the MODX core and open source extras. Every contribution shows that these hours upon hours of work are worth something to you, and that will motivate me to keep up and make more time available to keep making the CMS you use better, one PR at a time.

Say thanks and help me fuel the caffeine addiction that keeps me going. $1 pays for about a days worth of Dolce Gusto Lungo.

Gracias (+ Twitter shoutout)

If you're really grateful, or really like Spanish, your contribution will help me unwind every now and then with a trip to the cinema (without the popcorn) or a nice lunch out of the house. 


I'll also tell my Twitter followers how awesome you are.
