Open Source

Our efforts to provide free and open source web-based software

Background on the open web

Much of the modern web industry is built on open source software and open standards. This ranges all the way from the core HTML and CSS standards to the web browsers and rendering engines millions of people use every day.

We believe the success of the web industry so far has been heavily due to its reliance on open standards and software. Therefore, as a company, we try to contribute useful open source software, libraries and tools. Often these are used by us internally for projects and our day to day work.

Open Source Minisite

We have a website hosted using GitHub Pages dedicated to displaying our Open Source Software efforts. It is used to present our projects to other developers to help find our open source solutions that we provide.
