Open Source Friday

Your business runs on open source software

Once a week, every week. Take time to invest in the open source software you use and love.

Your business depends on it

Companies need open source software to run effectively.

Improve the technology you rely on

Direct participation in open source gives your organization a voice in the software you depend on.

Work better together

Open source development models are at the forefront of software collaboration. Developers who work on open source learn intuitively to improve quality, speed, and transparency at your organization.

Reduce overhead

Contributing regularly to open source saves money and developer hours by reducing the custom software you need to maintain.

Attract and retain talent

Employees that work on open source boost their, and their employer's, reputation.

Open Source Friday in your organization

Improving your developer culture is too important to be left unplanned.

Set aside time

Each Friday, encourage your managers, employees, and coworkers to spend at least two hours working on the open source projects your organization already uses.

Make it a habit

Create clear, internal policies so employees can easily and consistently contribute to open source.

Set a reminder

Add Open Source Friday to your calendar next Friday.
