Free software contributor, mainly Whisperfish and PETs in general

rubdos receives €20.16 per week from 9 patrons. Goal: €5.00


Free software contributor, drinking the occasional coffee and looking at a Gitlab.com Silver subscription.


I am in the process of rewriting and modernizing Whisperfish, a Signal client for SailfishOS. Money put towards me for Whisperfish will be put against coffee and a Gitlab.com Silver subscription. The latter allows me to use "epics", which is a clean and public way to document progress.

If you conisder donating to me because of Whisperfish, consider matching your donation to the Signal foundation. They definitely need it more than I do!

Rust Belgium

I am the organiser of the Rust Belgium meetup group. Hosting a group on Meetup costs quite some money; your Liberapay contribution would go in part there.

About me

I contribute to several free software projects when I see a bug. In my daily life, I work as a researcher at the VUB. My research is about building secure peer-to-peer technology, of which my pet-project is Glycos. Glycos also has a Liberapay Community.
