According to a report by Businesswire, Codefresh has announced the establishment of a $100 million open source fund and it will offer grants up to $1 million. It said that the fund is aimed to foster the growth and expediency of open source projects from development and deployment to ongoing maintenance. The company said that the fund will be launched in 2020.
Dan Garfield, chief technologyeEvangelist of Codefresh said, “Codefresh has contributed to open source projects related to Kubernetes such as Helm and Chart Museum, and many open source projects have used Codefresh to power their Continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) and software delivery supply chain. The Codefresh $100 Million Open Source Fund is a way to give even more back to the community that has embraced and empowered Codefresh from the beginning.”
Improve quality of code
The company also said that the fund will provide grants to open source projects specifically to improve their DevOps, systems and processes for increasing contributions and improving the quality of code delivered. It also announced two other initiatives which include unlimited builds and DevOps Hackathon to be held in December.
Garfiled further added, “CI/CD is the beating heart of every software project. Without strong automation, you can’t handle contributions, make releases, or fix bugs, that’s why we’re starting there.”
