I'm a senior software engineer. What else?

When I need something, I develop it and publish it for the open source community, then I try to keep it up-to-date so that indie developers and companies can enjoy my work in real world products.
The most known example is EnTT, an open source library written in C++ and used also in Mincraft by Mojang and the ArcGIS Runtime SDKs by Esri. Another valuable example is uvw, the most used C++ wrapper for libuv. If you're looking for a battle-tested library to work with runtime reflection in modern C++, there is also meta.
And so on. All of them are available for free from my GitHub account.

In addition to open source software, I also develop proprietary software that you can find for free where possible. In general I try to get out of the lines to give users an experience if not unique at least rare. One example is Face Smash, a game you can play with your face but also a product whose code is not publicly available (at least for now).

As I create libraries and games, I also try to document them and help users with some ideas that can be useful to them, in the form of posts on my blog. Some of these articles also have a follow up only for patrons that I publish directly on Patreon in the form of private posts. Moreover, you can also find some in-depth analysis or code snippets on topics related to the tools I'm working on from time to time.

And when I take a minute for myself, I also share what I learn on StackOverflow, where I'm skypjack, a 30k+ rep C++ gold badge.

However, this doesn't pay the bills and it's difficult to start new open source projects, maintain a high level of quality (the same required to become part of the second best-selling game ever), add new features and give support on different tools, not being able to work on them except in the free time.

This is why your support is important and can make the difference.

If you like my works and you're using them in your real world products, if you want me to develop new high quality tools, if you want me to write articles about trending topics like ECS, if you want to have exclusive access to extra contents, please consider to donate and allow me to work on the things you love.

Thank you.
