Check out the open‑source and charitable projects that we will support thanks to Dawid’s choices.
An open‑source version control system created in 2005 by Linus Torvalds as an alternative to the then‑proprietary BitKeeper. It’s one of the most common tools used by developers—from freelancers to tech giants such as Google, Netflix, Twitter, or Android.
“Git is one of the first tools developers learn. We use it in almost every project—both commercial or hobbyist—whenever it requires developers to seamlessly work together. The system also works well in projects with a single developer—it allows the separation of work on individual elements of the application thanks to the so-called »branches« and, if necessary, to restore the previous version of the code,” explains Dawid.
If you want to become a Git expert and use its advanced functions like a pro, refer to the freely available book “Pro Git.”
Animal Shelter in Tczew
Animal shelter in David’s home town. In 2020, shelter volunteers helped find homes for 326 dogs and 48 cats. In the same year—with only funds from 1% tax donations—they replaced the roofs over the boxes, renovated some of the boxes, and provided their four‑legged friends with insulated kennels, specialized food, and medical treatment.
“A shelter’s expenses list never ends. That’s why I’m supporting the shelter in my city for the 5th time as part of #DarowiznySidnet”, says our programmer.
The shelter in Tczew is one of ten shelters run by the National Society for Animal Protection OTOZ Animals. Every day, the organization’s representatives rescue animals from hunger and pain, fight in courts to punish their tormentors, and prepare animals for adoption.
