Uber has been an active and committed member of the open source community, leveraging, contributing, and developing open source solutions across our tech stack since launching our platform nearly 10 years ago. Announced today during Uber Open Summit 2018, we extend our commitment by joining the Linux Foundation as a Gold Member, continuing to support the open source community through the Linux Foundation.
“Uber has been influential in the open source community for years, and we’re very excited to welcome them as a Gold member at the Linux Foundation,” said Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of the Linux Foundation. “Uber truly understands the power of open source and community collaboration, and I am honored to witness that first hand as a part of Uber Open Summit 2018.”
Through this membership, Uber will support the Linux Foundation’s mission to build ecosystems that accelerate open source technology development. Uber will continue collaborating with the community, working with other leaders in the space to solve complex technical problems and further promote open source adoption globally.
“Open source technology is the backbone of many of Uber’s core services and as we continue to mature, these solutions will become ever more important,” said Thuan Pham, Uber CTO. “The Linux Foundation not only provides homes to many significant open source projects, but also creates an open environment for companies like Uber to work together on developing these technologies. We are honored to join the Linux Foundation to foster greater collaboration with the open source community.”
