Yurii Rashkovskii is creating open source software for decentralized collaboration

There are so many interesting ideas to be tried and implemented to advance the state of software and so little time. I am looking for your help to dedicate my time to it.

These days I am very passionate about decentralized collaboration (aka "edge computing", "desert computing", "true serverless"), and creating open/free solutions for developers that liberate them from vendor lock-ins and all things around. I've recently released SIT (Serverless Information Tracker).

I've also worked on a bunch of different projects (in no specific order): PumpkinDB, GraphQL Java, Elixir, erlzmq2, and a number of smaller libraries for Rust, Java, JavaScript, Erlang, Elixir and Ruby. I've got a bunch of interesting things in the pipeline.

I also have been around Bitcoin and Blockchain since 2012 (co-founded two startups in the space) and still have a lot of interest in the subject.

Join me in my quest! If you have any thoughts or requests on what open source software I can contribute to, let me know.

Get Shit Done
$1,000 or more per month 0 of 8 patrons
This is getting more serious. I can avail myself to your company for one full day (8 hours), every month. Can be split in two chunks.

This reward allows you to engage my expertise on a regular basis to a greater benefit — unstuck your team, break through issue, do some mentorship or code review. Anything valuable you can think of!

Patrons are encouraged to release some or all results of these days as open source, if feasible. I will help in preparing PR or other activities for a successful contribution.

Unused hours don't roll over.
Goals
$58 of $500 per month
When I reach $500 per month, I'll start writing bi-weekly status reports on my research and programming efforts.
