Hey there, I'm Max.


The foundation of the modern world is developer tools.


I build developer tools, I want to make the things you need to make the world a better place. This is my talent, it's the career I was destined for. A few years ago I created Homebrew, the package manager for Mac, used by millions due to its sensible design and careful developer-experience. I apply the same process to all the open source I make.


I actively maintain over 30 open source projects, including the top-100 pod, PromiseKit, swift-sh the tool that makes scripting with Swift third party dependencies trivial, and Path.swift an elegant, delightful pathing utility.


Once my Patreon gets enough support there are multiple other tools I am working on that will be open sourced, starting with the last one I wrote: Canopy.


Everything I release is featured on Patreon first, giving you the opportunity to talk about it before the rest of the Internet hears about it.


If you prefer not to use Patreon or just want to make a one time tip, I have other options.


Your donation makes it possible for me to work on open source full-time and for that I am truly grateful 🙏
