Simplifying the lives of developers, supporting organizations, and end users, one open technology project at a time
Neutral home for code and collaboration
No agendas. No politics. Just stuff developers need to build and maintain projects.
The key to a successful open technology project is to ensure a neutral playing field for all developers, technologists, and companies to collectively contribute to project evolution and growth. The Linux Foundation was built on the idea of the democratization of code and scaling adoption, for all projects equally. Expert legal and governance support programs ensure everyone is on the same playing field.
Ecosystem curation and community building
Helping developers gather the necessary elements to create critical project mass.
The promise of open source runs the gamut from the smallest academic research projects to enterprise innovations that can transform industries and create new markets. At the Linux Foundation, we have a proven track-record of helping aspiring projects to create new technology categories by identifying trends early, and igniting the adoption of innovative, upcoming technologies by building and scaling developer ecosystems.
Enterprise ready, the OSS way
Transforming code into commerce with OSS-centric marketing tools and support programs.
The biggest hurdle for any project is preparing for enterprise-wide adoption. The Linux Foundation provides dedicated programs to scale your developer and user communities. We provide project operations support, IT infrastructure management, event management, training and certification, marketing, and membership development to attract the biggest companies in the world to accelerate scale and adoption. Let us help you run your project so you can focus on the code.
Insights and tools to succeed
Grok what’s really happening in your community. Manage your code.
Without the proper tools to understand how a project is performing and how to take action on those insights, it’s challenging to efficiently drive a project forward without burning resources. The Linux Foundation is the only organization with a comprehensive platform that provides the tooling and analytics capabilities to streamline project operations and community engagement, automate technology infrastructure, simplify project management, and facilitate the scale of community awareness and enterprise-wide adoption.
Our communities and their partners are committed to the practices of DevOps, Continuous Integration, and Continuous Delivery by developing solutions for enforcing automation in building, testing, and deployment of applications and tools that increase an organization’s ability to deliver applications and services at high velocity.
“It’s one thing to create a great piece of software. It’s quite another to have it make a mark on the entire industry. These are the companies and organizations whose work has had a significant impact on what others build, how they build it, and ultimately, who uses it: Apple, Facebook, Google, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, GitHub, Netflix, Red Hat, Slack, and the Linux Foundation.”
