Hi! I'm Drew, and I work full time on free and open source software. 100% of the code I write is made available to the public with an OSI-approved open-source software license. With your support on Patreon, I work on the maintenance of my own projects, including:

sway: A tiling Wayland compositor for Linux/FreeBSD
wlroots: A toolkit for building new Wayland compositors (19 to date)
sr.ht: A project hosting web suite for hackers
aerc: A next-generation email client for your terminal
TrueCraft: An open source implementation of Minecraft beta 1.7.3
KnightOS: A Unix-like OS for z80 calculators and related tools
pass-rotate: The youtube-dl of automated password rotation

And more projects still - too many to list! I also work with and contribute to many other open source projects throughout the ecosystem.

Please note that in an effort to focus on free software platforms, I've moved my monthly status updates to [my blog](https://drewdevault.com/). I encourage you to consider donating via [fosspay](https://drewdevault.com/donate) or [liberapay](https://liberapay.com/SirCmpwn) as well.

Thanks to your support, I'm able to do this full time. Thank you for helping to support sustainable free and open source software development!
