Supporting OS software and communities
Open source software is at the core of the work we do for our clients and powers our own products. Engaging with the open source ecosystem by contributing to external projects, opening our own tools, and sponsoring the maintainers that enable us is an important part of our culture through our Organization in Open Collective and Github.
Collaborating with Open Source Projects
As part of our efforts to push our team to always keep learning, we support an internal gild of team members that are passionate about participating in Open Source projects.
Tinkering in OS code is one of the best ways to improve your skills. You'll learn about good coding practices, new patterns, used libraries, project setup, and you'll level up your communication game in PRs discussions with skillful maintainers.
Our team members have opened PRs in several open source projects like svg-loaders-react, next-styles, PptxGenJS, mui-datatables, Excalidraw, Vite, vue-next, VitePress, VueUse, Rollup Plugins, houdini.how, Three.js and created personal projects like react-stories, vite-rollup-plugins between others.

We also open source where possible the tools that our team is building. Last year we open sourced Layouit Grid and the response in the community has been amazing. The Layoutit Grid Repo has more than 600 stars and more than 20 collaborators.
Our research team also works in the open, and releases the code for the data visualizations in our Research umbrella project.
We are about to open source Data Viz, a new open web tool that we are excited to share.
Sponsorships, Giving back to the Community
In 2021, we started an ongoing series of sponsorships to give back to the open source maintainers that are building our toolbox. Open source sustainability is fundamental for the long term health of the web.
