Free software

I'm a core maintainer of Roc Toolkit, software for real-time audio streaming. This is a big project that provides libraries, tools, bindings, sound server integrations, mobile apps.

I am a big advocate of high quality software and spend a lot of time and effort to ensure that each release runs smoothly on many platforms. The project has a huge roadmap.

Besides Roc, I maintain other audio-related projects:

  • libASPL - a library for creating Audio Server Plugins (virtual devices) for macOS
  • Signal Estimator - tool for measuring signal latency and other characteristics, in real-time
  • WebRTC CLI - command-line WebRTC peer
  • MiniSAPListener - command-line SAP/SDP receiver

Also I created and maintain httpexpect - a widely used Go library for end-to-end HTTP API testing, and a few other Go libraries and tools.

You can find the full list of my software on my homepage.

How donations help

Some time ago I've quit full-time job and switched to freelancing, to spend more time on open-source. Now, a few years later, I made up my mind to start receiving donations.

Freelancing allows me to convert donated money directly to open-source work. Each dollar donated means that I don't need to spend time to earn that dollar and can spend it on FOSS projects instead.

I keep track of personal donations here: donation history.

Thank you!
