We Are Looking into GitHub Sponsors (and You Should too)

We are looking into GitHub Sponsors (and you should too) With GitHub Sponsors, we now have a great way to gather all sponsorships in one place. Here's a list of the first five people we decided to sponsor and why. In this post, I will highlight the people that we already decided to sponsor and why.

Ever since GitHub Sponsors was announced back in 2019, we have been looking into using that to give back a little to some of the people behind the open-source projects we use and love. Being a bootstrapped company we don't have thousands of dollars to hand out, but a little is better than nothing, right? In this post, I will highlight the people that we already decided to sponsor and why.

Let's face it. Maintaining an open-source project and stay motivated is hard. People don't already appreciate what you are doing and expect you to provide 24/7 support of that thing you spend your evenings and weekends evolving. There are often costs in terms of cash involved too, domain(s), hosting, etc. Getting some financial help means more than you would think for both the direct costs and motivation.

We have been sponsoring people for years. Typically through Patreon and Buy Me a Coffee. With GitHub Sponsors, we now have a great way to gather all sponsorships on a single platform and automatically sponsor awesome developers either monthly or annually. Here's a list of the first five people we decided to sponsor and why.

Patrik Svensson

Patrik is a great developer located in Sweden. He's a Microsoft MVP and probably most known for creating Cake. We are sponsoring Patrik to recognize him for one of his other projects named Spectre.Console. Spectre.Console makes it easy to create beautiful CLIs using custom colors, tables, progress bars, and much more. Spectre.Console took our CLIs to the next level.

Stay Safe on GitHub: Security Practices to Follow

As developers in this deeply interconnected community use open source code to build software, Github security should be a top priority. This is because extensive code re-use increases the risk of distributing vulnerabilities from one dependency or repository to another. As such, every contributor should focus on creating a secure development environment. Here are eight security practices that GitHub users can follow to stay safe and protect their code:
