It looks like 2020 is shaping up to be quite different than most of us thought. With public health experts predicting that social distancing protocols could be in effect for a year or more, we at Nami have felt the need to do something to help people affected by the pandemic. I would like to take this time to share with you two things that we are working on currently to support our community.

Volunteer-Driven Coronavirus Relief Projects

After speaking with our colleagues in several developer communities, we have compiled a list of volunteer-driven projects related to solving problems caused by this crisis. Currently, there are many groups of people working tirelessly to manufacture masks and ventilators for those in need. However, we are a software company with no manufacturing capabilities. Therefore we have come together to find seven community software projects helping problems like vaccine research data mining, elder outreach, and healthcare system capacity. We encourage all software engineers and app developers to take a look at the list of projects and contribute if they can.

Supporting Independent App Developers

Born in 2008, the App Economy has become very large. Just one of the ecosystems— the Apple App Store— has paid out more than $155 billion dollars to developers.

Unfortunately, during this challenging time many developers are seeing a drop in revenue. Just as we are all trying to help support our favorite local cafes or restaurants during this challenging time, let’s all try to support independent app developers who depend on a robust App Economy.

To do our part, we want to celebrate independent app developers that we admire. Some of these are Nami customers, but many of them aren’t. Either way, we want to use our audience to give them exposure during this challenging time.

Follow us on Twitter at @HelloNamiML for our daily #SupportIndieDevs shoutout. We’re tweeting by way of a list of indie apps from our public GitHub repository. If you would like to be on the list, please submit a pull request or let us know.

We are all in this pandemic together, let’s do everything we can to help each other out.

"It took a couple of hours to incorporate their easy to use SDK. Nami provides a monetization machine learning solution, a paywall displaying what a user can purchase, and a whole suite of other useful features. As a result, it saved me development cycles so I could focus on other important things."
