“Having Google’s ongoing support is so important to our open source scientific computing projects,” said Leah Silen, NumFOCUS Executive Director. “We appreciate their continued participation in our corporate sponsorship program.”
Google has supported the NumFOCUS community over many years, most recently by selecting five NumFOCUS projects to the cohort of the inaugural Google Season of Docs. NumFOCUS has participated in Google Summer of Code since 2015, and multiple NumFOCUS community members and project maintainers have been the recipient of awards from Google’s Open Source Peer Bonus Program.
Founded in 1998, Google is a multinational, publicly-traded organization built around the company’s hugely popular search engine. Google specializes in Internet-related services and products including online advertising technologies, cloud computing, software, and hardware.
Google believes that open source is good for everyone. By being open and freely available, it enables and encourages collaboration and the development of technology, solving real world problems.
