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.
Patreon, GitHub sponsor and 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.
I've posted the list of Perl-related creators who have a Patreon or GitHub sponsors account on the Perl Maven site where updating the list is just a Pull-request away.
