I want the videos to be free so people from all countries can watch them. I have invested hundreds of hours in producing this content. If you want me to continue creating new episodes and improving the site (I have a long list of ideas and requests) please consider donating. You could also sponsor a new video. In that case I would mention your name at the beginning of the video.
Paypal is the most popular online payment system. They keep 1.2% + 0.35€ from each donation.
Coinbase uses bitcoin, which is a digital currency. Sending and receiving money is free, but there's a Commision of 1% if you buy bitcoins on Coinbase.
Other ways to support Fun Programming
Things you can do:
- Upload images and videos generated by your programs and send me a link. I'll be happy to see your creations.
- Send feedback. Send a hello! I know people watch the tutorials because I see the stats, but most of the time I have no idea who you are. A short "Hello from [YOURCITY]!" makes me happy :)
- Tell others about Fun Programming.
- Hire me. I'll be happy to give workshops or develop projects that involve art and code for you.
