Codacy Product Showcase: April 2024
OPEN SOURCE FRONTIER
As a company founded by two developers, it has always been our ambition to give back to the community in some way.
Codacy Pioneers is our small contribution to continued vibrancy and greatness of one of our most precious public assets.
We aim to sponsor and support people who build, maintain and contribute to innovative open source projects.
Our program is based on the following four pillars:
TOP OSS Developers
Meet the Pioneers
James is just as passionate about oscilloscope music as he is about giving artists free access to helpful tools. In a marketplace dominated by corporate products, Ball strives to create open-source audio plugins like osci-render that artists can use freely to spark innovation and creativity.
Best is guided by the mission of making education accessible for all. His ambitious Classroomio project is an open-source learning management system (LMS) that strives to automate and enrich learning experiences in and outside the classroom.
Ryan has been an open-source enthusiast and recently left full-time employment to focus on his open-source projects. He is the main contributor to the increasingly popular MLpack machine-learning library.
Jesse is known far and wide in the open-source community as “the lazy developer,” but he’s truly anything but. His lazygit, lazydocker, and many other projects are widely used and well-rated. Jesse is also a brilliant content creator—his “The Pursuit of Laziness” blog is a must-read for any OSS creator.
Maximilian is part of the core team at Mitmproxy, a powerful, free, open-source HTTPS proxy. The software he’s building has been used to find countless security vulnerabilities, helped journalists at the New York Times or the Wall Street Journal uncover privacy violations, and helps thousands of developers save time debugging their network communication daily.
Geoffrey combines his passions for science and technology to create innovative and helpful open-source projects. A chemistry professor at the University of Pittsburgh, Geoffrey has created an app that helps teach practical chemistry. He is also the founder and lead developer of Open Babel: The Open Source Chemistry Toolbox.
Giovanni is the project lead at GlobalLeaks, a free, open-source whistleblowing platform that enables users to report human rights violations securely. This open-source technology is currently used in more than 10,000 projects.
Sebastián is the creator of FastAPI and many other open-source tools used by developers worldwide and tech giants like Microsoft, Uber, Netflix, and Cisco. He is very involved in the OSS community and has been building APIs, machine-learning tools, and data systems with companies across the globe.
Artem is a medical school graduate with ambitions to make open-source development his full-time gig. His MSW API mocking library for browser and Node.js, used by Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and GitHub, could change how API testing works.
Meet the Mentors
What is the Codacy Pioneers Fellowship?
The Codacy Pioneers Fellowship is a program for people building great open source projects. The Pioneers will receive mentorship from top OSS developers, cash sponsorship in the form of $500 per month, tooling, and publicity for their projects.
Who can apply?
Applications for this year are now closed! For the first edition of the program, we opened applications to all OSS creators, maintainers and contributors, focusing on any field—including but not limited to software, hardware, firmware, design, and infrastructure projects. The project must be released publicly under a standard open-source license.
What are you looking for?
We are looking for open-source projects from passionate creators who want to make a real impact on the world. We are excited to hear about what you believe makes your project special.
What is the timeline of the Codacy Pioneers Fellowship?
Applications now closed. The program runs for twelve months, until October 2024. This is a trial project. If it is helpful to the community we will do our best to run it annually. You can keep an eye on this page to check on the Pioneers' progress through our video series "How to with Open Source".
