We believe in open source

The IT world is standing on the shoulder of open-source giants. To leverage the power of these giants, we have built our whole company around open-source. We firmly believe in open source; it is one of our core values and has been embedded in our DNA on a personal and company level.

Empowering Open-Source

We write massive amounts of code. We've contributed a lot of code to Orchard Core and many commits to Orchard CMS as well (you can see what we'll possibly contribute next here) We're the stewards and contribute continously to Orchard Core Commerce, the ecommerce module for Orchard Core. Apart from our direct contributions we've published well over 100 open-source modules and themes for Orchard. Among these is the Training Demo Module, the go-to beginner's guide for aspiring Orchard developers. Our Orchard Core extensions, as well as other suitable open-source projects of ours we also publish on NuGet.

To help people get going with and be informed about Orchard, we run the Orchard learning site Orchard Dojo. This includes free tutorials, other learning resources, and a top-rated weekly blog post series on what happens in the Orchard community (it's also available as a newsletter).

So others can see Orchard in action, we publish Orchard videos on our YouTube channel. This includes the recordings of the Orchard community's weekly meetings, Orchard Core demos, video tutorials, and more.

As a gallery of exemplary Orchard websites, we run Show Orchard.

To serve as the heartbeat of the Orchard blogosphere, we've created Orchard Blogs, an aggregated stream of Orchard-related blog posts.

So people can try Orchard CMS without anything; we host Try Orchard!! Where you can test-drive Orchard on demo sites. This runs on DotNest, our public Orchard SaaS.

We also constantly give feedback and share our opinions during our weekly meetings and in the issue tracker so that we can help steer the project in the right direction and provide a hand to fellow Orchard contributors and users when needed.

Our financial contributions to open-source

Being an established company, we can also contribute financially to open-source projects, to the ones we find most valuable. These are the projects and developers we currently support continuously:


A great library for UI testing, extending Selenium.

Sébastien Ros

One of the main developers of Orchard Core and several libraries it uses.

Former sponsorships

Every year, we re-evaluate which developers and projects we want to sponsor. We allocate our budget in a way that we can have the most positive impact, supporting active developers who don't otherwise get a lot of attention. We formerly had the below sponsorships as well, but at one point we decided that others would benefit from our funds more. They're still great developers!


A REST API client library that's a joy to use.

Security Code Scan

C# code analyzer that automatically detects security issues, thus keeping our apps safe.


A great fluent assertion library that we've been using in our tests for quite a while.

Ad-hoc sponsorships

Occasionally we also sponsor ad-hoc fixes to other projects too, like the following ones:

Send us your project!

We periodically check on the people and projects we sponsor to see if they're still active, as well as add new ones. We're on the lookout for more amazing projects, so certainly let us know if you know of one! We want to support smaller, less popular but still important projects that are otherwise under the radar of most people.

Note that while some of the open-source contributors we support also do contract work with us, the support is independent of that: We don't and will never ask for any favours in exchange, the support is for the contributor's existing activities.

Open-source and open hearts

Apart from the software world we also try to help in other communities with our philanthropic activities. Most recently, we've delivered thousands of reusable masks to the Hungarian Charity Service of the Order of Malta during the coronavirus pandemic, as well as help for refugees of the war in Ukraine, and again, and again. Recently, we also helped homeless people.
