Mario Bašić is creating open-source packages.

My passion is programming and I love contributing to open source either by writing packages/libraries or improving the open source projects that I use.

Creating, maintaining and adding new features to open-source packages takes a considerable amount of time. I plan to use the funds obtained from this sponsorship to support my open-source work. If I could I would only work on open source, but since that does not pay the bills I have to invest my time in opportunities that bring money so that I can support myself, my family, and my open source contributions.

If you run a business and it is using any of my packages in a revenue-generating product, it would make business sense to sponsor its development. It ensures the project that your product relies on stays healthy and actively maintained. It can also help your exposure in the developer community and makes it easier to attract other developers.

Individual users are welcome to make a recurring pledge if any of my packages has helped them in work or personal projects.

You can view my resume and portfolio on my personal website which is built using Phel.

I'm currently working:

  • as a full stack developer at my own software company Go Visit whose main product at the moment is (Visit Murter) using PHP/Laravel, React Native and F#.
  • as a freelancer building websites and business applications using mostly PHP, JS, TS, React.js, Vue.js, and Laravel (Laravelista).
  • on my private sponsorware PHP packages repository using F# serverless functions on Azure.
  • on writing new blog posts that help other programmers using markdown 😃
