Hello there, I'm Patrick 👋🏻

I'm the creator and maintainer of the open source project Hobby Kube. To keep this project going and growing, I'd like to raise some money from the community.

Your contributions will enable me to use more resources across different cloud providers to ensure the reliability of this project and to experiment with various new configurations.
