From the bottom of our hearts, we want to extend our greatest THANK YOU to the open source community for the amazing support and interactions you’ve given us these past 3.5 years. It has been an honor and privilege to work with you all. The {code} Team has always been committed to the open source community, and we have had a wonderful time working with all of you. Our most successful open source contributions, REX-Ray and its associated projects, are moving to a neutral governance model which we believe will be a great for continued collaboration and growth of the projects.

There were many success stories throughout the {code} Team’s open source journey:

  • With you, the {code} Community grew to become one of the largest open source-focused Slack teams with over 5,600 members, collaborating on a wide variety of successful open source projects and initiatives.
  • The DevHigh5 program was a success, resulting in 100+ open source projects from {code} Community members being shepherded through processes surrounding intellectual property, documentation, and community support.
  • The {code} Catalyst program brought together 38 amazing individuals from 26 organizations and 10 countries, they are who we consider some of the best and most passionate open source community contributors across the globe.
  • Communications via {code} Webinars, {code} Catalyst Spotlights, Engineering Roundtables and updates, and speaking engagements at events all over the world helped us all to deliver the open source and community message.
  • Last but not least, all the fun that we had at {code} Assemblies is just another example of the relationships we built and which will live on within the {code} legacy.

The {code} Team’s last official day is Friday, March 2nd.

Personally and from {code}, we truly cannot thank you enough for all of the joy, feedback and support you’ve given us. We couldn’t have dreamt of a better community of people to work with.

Stay in touch with us! I’m sure you’ll be seeing us around!
