Sergey Vasilyev

Berlin, Germany


I am a Software Developer (since I remember myself) and in love with Python (since 2009).

Nowadays, I develop Kopf — a framework for writing arbitrary Kubernetes operators with Python easily. And I occasionally contribute to other 🐍 Python❤️ Kubernetes☸️ stuff (libraries, clients, etc.).

I dream of overthrowing Go from the throne of Kubernetes-related development and putting Python there — for no particular reason, just for the fun of it. Though, neither Kubernetes nor worldwide industry landscape shift is my job — it is a hobby.

At work, I earn enough for living, thank you. I take these donations as gratitude, a sign of appreciation, and your support for what I do here in GitHub. Hypothetically, if they approach the salary levels (which is naive per se), I might reconsider my time distribution for more open-source.

Your appreciation will warm my cold heart when I will be drinking a cold beer during a cold winter in this cold town. I will raise a full mug to honour your name.

Limited offer — capped by the liver capacity.

$8 a month


A bit of nostalgia on 8-bit computers and low software complexity. The good old times when you could store a popular 2.5-dimensional (don't ask) computer game on an audio-tape (don't! even! ask!).

Or should it be rather 16? 16 sounds round and squarish at the same time — if you know what I mean.

Or should it be rather 15? 15 sounds enough. This is a hard choice.

I'm completely lost now.

Sorry, I didn't get it: what was the question?
