Hey,

Everyone here can make a big impact to a project, to someone else. I’m very excited about this when reading stories like an intern at Google doing an experiment that saves tons of traffic, or getting an email by one of my readers who now shares an awesome complete beginner guide to front-end development.

We need to recognize that our industry depends on people who share their open-source code and we should support them and their projects that we heavily rely on. Finally, we also need to understand that these people perhaps don’t want a job as an employee at some big company but remain independent instead. So if you make money with a project that uses open-source libraries or other resources, maybe Valentine’s Day might be an occasion to show your appreciation and make the author a nice present.

And with that, I’ll close for this week. If you like what I write each week, please support me with a donation or share this resource with other people. You can learn more about the costs of the project here. It’s available via email, RSS and online.
