Hi I'm Matt and thanks for visiting my patreon page! 👋

For the past four years I've been spending thousands of hours of my free time working on open source Angular components, the most notable of which being angular-calendar. I really fell in love with open source while working on this calendar and it prompted me to start several other projects, all of which have been pretty successful.

Considering I have no twitter following and never did anything to promote my work other than publish it to GitHub and npm, I have seen incredible year on year growth of all my projects - angular-calendar is still the most popular and is now downloaded over 100,000 times a month on npm and has 1400+ stars on GitHub! Those numbers, plus all the wonderful people that email and tweet me to say it helped them, really tell me that this is a useful project to a lot of people and this makes me so happy to see 😍

Over the last few months my life has changed significantly with the decision to go nomad and I'm finding it more difficult to justify spending my evenings and weekends working on open source for free. So this is where you can help! If any of my projects have helped you or your company, please consider making a donation to support my work so I can continue to answer issues, fix bugs and keep my projects up to date with the latest angular versions. It really makes a lot of sense for your company to invest in the open source projects they rely on, as they can be far more certain they won't be abandoned and help to minimise risk to the business. 

If you'd like to speak to me about anything open source related, you can find my email or social networks on the top right of my website.

p.s. if you'd like to make a one time donation you can paypal me instead.
