Become a sponsor to Kevin R. Whitley

Hi there!

I'm a long-time open source author and artist, driven by creating better, shorter, and more-readable code. I help take the painful boilerplate out of your code! Ultimately, and with your help, I'd like to be able to devote more time to OSS maintenance/development.

I'm currently working on building tooling/helper libraries around Cloudflare Workers (and service workers in general), including the ~460 byte itty-router - as I think they are going to help revolutionize how we build serverless apps!

Follow me @kevinwhitley on Twitter | Instagram | LinkedIn

The Side Project: Slick

My side venture, slick.af is an image-gallery service built upon Cloudflare Workers/KV/DO in the same principles I stand for in software development today. It is:

  • free (I'm self-funding to keep this possible)
  • ad free (looking at you, Instagram)
  • doesn't track anything or sell any data (privacy!)
  • absurdly easy to use (it's what I do)
  • flexible/powerful (I love enabling creativity)

Your support helps speed up development on any OSS and community-focused projects! 🙏

@kwhitley

Enable full time support of current/future OSS projects and continued development of tools with the mindset of "write less, do more". Currently it's quite difficult to juggle this in addition to tech leadership roles within companies!
