NumFOCUS is grateful to IBM, and all of our corporate sponsors, for their generous and vital support for our open source software projects.

At IBM, we are committed to driving innovation in open source and have incorporated open source across our product portfolio to deliver differentiating value to our customers. From our work with Linux, Apache, and Eclipse, to our current work across all layers of the cloud stack, IBM is one of the top contributors to open source code and projects. That is why we are proud to be supporting NumFOCUS as a partner to help advance its projects.
