Supporting Perl-related creators via Patreon and GitHub

Yesterday I posted about this in the Perl Weekly newsletter and both Mohammad and myself got 10 new supporters. This is awesome.

There are not many ways to express the fact that you really value the work of someone.
You can send them postcards or thank-you notes, but when was the last time you remembered to do that?

Right, I also keep forgetting to thank the people who create all the free and awesome stuff I use.

Giving money as a way to express your thanks is frowned upon by many people, but trust me, the people who open an account on Patreon to make it easy to donate them money will appreciate it.

In any case it is way better than not saying anything.

What is Patreon?

Patreon is a service where you can give a monthly donation to your favourite creator. Donations can be as low as $1 / month.

What is GitHub Sponsors?

GitHub Sponsors is a way that allows you to support Open Source developers. (It isn't available in every country yet.)

Patreon, GitHub sponsor and Perl

I've found 4 Patreon accounts and 1 GitHub sponsor account related to Perl

So pick one or all three of us and depending on your financial possibilities sign up to give a monthly donation.


New names were added and support via GitHub is also mentioned.
