For the third time, I will be doing a three-day ride from Boston to New York, along with hundreds of amazing people. Everyone was in various levels of fitness and with various levels of interest in cycling, but everyone had come together with the aim of helping raise a shitload of money to help those living with HIV/Aids.

Two years in a row, a bunch of the tech community jumped on board together to raise almost $6,000 one year and $5,325 another year.

Once again I have enlisted the help of my author/business-owner friends to offer donation rewards. I know you're all nice people and want to donate money to any cause that will stop people from suffering, but sometimes getting something back in return can help you fit that donation into your budgets.

There are some awesome rewards in here, and a few copies of my book of course:

$10 - Any one of the following:

$25 - Any one of the following:

$200 - Any one of the following:

  • One hour of Skype consultation on API design, API testing, PHP, Rails, managing services, whatever, from meeee

Interested? Make a donation.

Help me help other people. $5k is a huge amount of money, and I've only got a few weeks to get it done.

All the money sent via that portal goes straight to the charity, and they have a huge number of volunteers keeping costs of the ride the lowest I've seen. They even keep their modeling costs down by using us riders to strike a pose!

I agreed to take this daft photo if y'all got me to $5k last year. This time there will be a lovely photo of me riding in a red cocktail dress.

It's an amazing group of people, and I'm excited to be riding with them again. We have big goals to hit and we need you to help.

P.S: If you would like to offer some rewards for these donations to help the charity get even more money, and get yourself a bit of marketing and increased sales as an extra reward, please get in touch.

Build APIs You Won't Hate

Everyone and their dog wants an API, so you should probably learn how to build them.

Buy it from LeanPub or Amazon.
