I love helping people and enjoy doing all the free stuff. I also find working on the free stuff motivating, it encourages me to try out new things, to push boundaries and learn from it. However, the bank made it very clear that I cannot pay my mortgage with passion and love.
Your donation gives me the opportunity to learn and change the world one line of code at a time.
You can use this link (paypal.me/erikthiart) if you want to donate via Paypal.
I have a dedicated server, the server is hosted by OVH
I have a github premium account for working on open source projects
I have developer accounts for the Google Playstore and the Apple iStore
I have a subscription to Lynda.com and Laracasts to help me learn and stay up to date with technology.
There are other costs as well, like a house, food and coffee.
Honestly, I have NO idea how much to ask you for, but is a donation of $5 something you'd be able to consider?
