+++ Launching a Side Project Backed by Github Sponsors +++
Here's a trick how to double your income as an open-source maintainer: Just use a calculator.
Seriously, though, earning money with open-source is hard!
I earned 0 Euros from maintaining OSS software for years, and I thought
that's the way things are. I finally looked into ways to monetize my projects this year and
I want to share what I learned along the way. It didn't make rich (yet!), but I built my first sustainable side-project with http://analysis-tools.dev.
I'll talk about the project and the mistakes I made on the road towards sustainability.
+++ Getting Started with PHP extensions +++
PHP extensions are performant code embellishments that serve as additions to the PHP userspace. Also known as modules, extensions are typically C/C++ syntaxes which interact with the PHP engine.
My talk features various explanations: from the rationale of extension building, to the structure and composition of modules, as well as a walkthrough on building a less-potent mimicry of the php_trie extension.
