I'm looking for contracting opportunities, and would like to know if the fediverse has any.
My skills: I am familiar with GTK, the Web, Python, Git, free software in general, and much more. I have a BSc, Computer Science. enjoy efficiently computing answers to problems, as well as designing UIs that are instantly familiar to your users. And if pressed I can do *some* graphic design (e.g. my avatar here/Odysseus's app icon).
Please DM me if interested.
And please boost this toot!

The GPL wasn't written for the developers installing code from npms or githubs.
It was for the user whose printer drivers didn't work with their new OS.
It was for the user who discovers a bug in a system they rely on every day to out bread on the table.
It was for the user whose needs extend beyond "does it work" to include "will this keep me from being hurt?"
Free software exists to give voice and medium to people who otherwise wouldn't have it. We'd be wise to remember that, since it cuts both ways.
