Going Open Source

Going Open Source

This is an area of our manifesto that is currently under development.

The most secure and sustainable technology is built and maintained as open source. That's why nearly our entire code base is built on open source libraries.

We pledge to open-source our platform, but we need your support to do it.

It takes a community to make an open source project successful. That's why we're actively engaged with partners like Mozilla and the Linux Foundation to grow our open source muscle.

We're already dedicated to growing our community of supporters through meetups, volunteer opportunities and internships. Are you interested in contributing to this effort? Jump in our slack now and get started.
