I am excited to announce that DigitalOcean has acquired the CSS-Tricks website, a learning site with 6,500 articles, videos, guides and other content focused on frontend development. CSS-Tricks will broaden and complement our existing library of content, furthering DigitalOcean’s reach with both frontend and full-stack developers, and supports our community strategy, a key differentiator for DigitalOcean in the cloud computing space. CSS-Tricks will continue operating as a standalone site supported by DigitalOcean, and CSS-Tricks founder Chris Coyier will support CSS-Tricks in an advisory capacity. 

DigitalOcean’s commitment to community and education 

At DigitalOcean we take great pride in our commitment to the developer and startup communities. We truly believe that our community is bigger than just us, and we have demonstrated this through our creation of more than 6,000 high-quality developer tutorials and approximately 30,000 community-generated questions & answers, hosting of community-focused events such as deploy, and support of the open source community through Hacktoberfest and other initiatives. 

We are proud that millions of people visit our website monthly to immerse in our digital content, and get the resources they need so they can get coding, get building and get growing.

By providing free resources to builders, we enable their growth and enable them to create impactful applications, which benefits all of us. CSS-Tricks founder Chris Coyier shares the same passion for the developer community as DigitalOcean. Chris and the CSS-Tricks team have built a popular website of resources and a loyal community of fellow developers and web designers. DigitalOcean’s existing content has been focused on backend development, and we are pleased to welcome this new community of frontend developers and web designers to the DigitalOcean community. 

What’s next for CSS-Tricks

CSS-Tricks will remain as a standalone site and all content will continue to be free and open to anyone. DigitalOcean will continue to publish new frontend content on CSS-Tricks and is excited to support both existing and new contributors to CSS-Tricks through our Write for DOnations program, which compensates authors for their contributions and enables them to choose a tech-focused charity or nonprofit to receive a donation from DigitalOcean.

Finally, I want to thank Chris and the CSS-Tricks authors and readers for their collaboration and support as we transition CSS-Tricks to DigitalOcean management. We look forward to continuing to serve the CSS-Tricks community for many years to come.
