We are excited to be a program development sponsor for The Ada Initiative, a non-profit committed to increasing the involvement and involvement opportunities of women in open technology and culture. The cause is near and dear to our heart, as CEO Luke sums up:
The open source community needs to recruit and retain more women. Sponsoring the Ada Initiative is an easy way for any organization to make a difference. It also demonstrates our company’s commitment to a a positive work environment for women and our conviction that equal opportunity in technology in open source is critical for its long term success.”

The Ada Initiative is named for Countess Ada Lovelace, widely recognized as the world’s first computer programmer.
