Open source is about helping everyone do more, better and we're proud to support it. Towards that purpose, DigitalOcean offers grants of credits to open source projects to help with their development, infrastructure, and testing needs. We strongly believe in giving back to the open source ecosystem we participate in and depend on.
We support a variety of early stage to mature and well-established open source projects, many of which we are also dependent upon, such as:
