Hi, I'm Sean

I co-lead the team that manages crates.io, the package repository for the Rust programming language. I'm also the person who gets woken up at 3 AM if the service goes down. I created Diesel, an ORM and query builder for Rust. Each week I co-host The Yak Shave, a podcast about development. I also am one of the all time top contributors to Ruby on Rails.

In 2019, I decided to devote as much time as possible to crates.io and the Rust organization. The language is at a critical point in its development, and I think I'm in a position where I can really help to make sure it succeeds long term.

The problem is that working on MIT/Apache licensed software doesn't exactly help pay the bills. That's why I'm asking for your help. With your donations, I'll be able to continue to devote my time to these projects, and create more open source software for you to use in your own projects.
