Open Source at Civis Analytics

February 5, 2016 Civis Analytics

Here at Civis Analytics, we love open source. We use Ruby on Rails, AngularJS, Docker, and Go (to name a few projects), and we’re happy to contribute back to the community and release our own open source projects.

We’re pleased to announce our new open source page where we will publish our open source projects and list our policies. We use the BSD 3-clause license and a Code of Conduct for our open source projects. These policies allow us to share our work using a standard license and provide an inclusive and respectful environment for people who participate in our projects.

We’ve already open sourced and talked about RubyAudit and Swagger::Diff in past blog posts.
Our newest project is one that builds, packages, and deploys Go projects called go-makefile. As always, we welcome your contributions and hope you find these projects useful.

We recognize the importance of contributing to open source and are proud to encourage our team to participate by submitting pull requests, filing issues, or creating new projects. We’ve been inspired by companies like Yelp, Shopify, Netflix, and others to publish open source projects. The success of existing open source projects and supporting new ones is worth working on and we all look forward to contributing to open source in 2016 and beyond.
