Starting this month, I’m offering discounts to Open Source work. The discounts I provide for open source projects offer a huge 35% discount from my standard rate structure.
DM me to learn about my open source rates!
I’ve written/contributed to a few crystal projects, all of which can be seen on my github:
Here are a couple of highlights:
An http middleware to capture Postgres Read Only errors and pass along headers so fly.io can properly replay the request
fly.cr/error_handler.cr at main · superfly/fly.cr · GitHub
My shard jumpstart, so I can provide great, new shards for anything new you might want to bring me in to undertake
For avram query group counting, I dug deep into will/crystal-pg:
And finally, I recently put together a shopify API client in crystal:
Feel free to DM me to hear about my service offerings!
Wow! I didn’t know that I could charge a Crystal Lang project with my discounted rates when I implemented debugging support for Crystal.
It is okay maybe to charge the rates for commercial services, but not for open source work.
But this is my opinion.
If somebody would like to have a library created specific to their needs, I’m open to doing that work.
Just because it’s open source doesn’t mean that work should be free.
A great example would be the fly.cr shard I made for fly.io:
GitHub - superfly/fly.cr: Crystal HTTP middleware to handle fly.io multi-region postgres replays.
Fly paid me to write that code because they wanted it done, and I don’t see anything wrong with that.
In a similar vein, Manas pays for open source work. (Source: Call for Crystal Language Devs! - #4 by beta-ziliani), so I really don’t understand where the tone of your message comes in.
