Earlier today, the Linux Foundation, a non-profit organization charged with innovating through open source, announced that Uber has become the newest Gold Member.
This announcement is part of the Uber Open Summit 2018, an event for developers to collaborate and innovate in open source on a large scale, in which the executive director of the Linux Foundation, Jim Zemlin, has a presentation.
"Uber has been active in the open source environment for years, creating projects like Jaeger or Horovod that allow businesses to create technology at scale. We are very excited to welcome Uber to the Linux Foundation community. Your knowledge will be an instrument for our projects to continue to improve as open solutions for cloud technologies, deep learning, data visualization and many other technologies that are critical for business today.”Mentions Zemlin.
Uber's gold membership will allow you to access the Linux Foundation expertise in managing growth in open source, as well as demonstrating your leadership and dedication to the open source community.
More than 1000 organizations are members of the Linux Foundation and have projects hosted there. Panasonic, Toshiba, Toyota, Facebook, Baidu, SUSE, are some of the companies that also have a gold membership.
