Why Open Source Technology

We love open source technology here at Codacy.  Open source allows programs to be publicly accessible so that people can modify and share creating a strong community and sense of collaboration.

As you know may now 100% free tier for Open Source projects, under which anyone who haves public repositories and wants to have their code reviewed can add their public projects on GitHub or Bitbucket and have them analyzed by Codacy (see our products here).

As part of our strategy on helping the Open Source community we also proactively analyze many Open Source projects and provide the results to anyone interested to know more about it via http://opensource.codacy.com/we really believe in giving it back to all our users, friends and the community that not only supports us but that help us be who we are.

But we’ve taken that a bit further…

We now want to give it back to the contributors and developers of the Open Source tools that we use at Codacy, so a couple weeks ago we’ve started contacting everyone who owns such tools and many of its current maintainers to let them know we use their tools and really appreciate their work.

We have created an exclusive page on our documentation regarding all the Open Source tools we’re currently using, links to their projects and names of people who tightly collaborate actively with us and helped Codacy through out the time.

Edit: We just published an ebook: “The Ultimate Guide to Code Review” based on a survey of 680+ developers. Enjoy!
