For us, supporting PostgreSQL is not a sign of commercial opportunism, but the expression of long-term involvement in the community. The choice of open source is also the choice of involment in the software development community.
Our reputation is built upon the quality and quantity of our contributions to the PostgreSQL community. Therefore Dalibo encourages all its employees to spend up to 20% of their time working in community activities : writing or proofreading code as well as writing articles, organizing conferences, etc. Here is a list of open-source projects that we used to or currently support:
A PostgreSQL Coop !
PostgreSQL success demonstrates that transparency, openness and self-management are a source of innovation and a guarantee of sustainability. Dalibo has integrated these principles in its own DNA : the company is a cooperative, fully owned and controlled by its workers. Decisions are taken in a democratic way and the profits are shared in equal parts.
Dalibo joined or supports the following non-profit organisations:
The French-speaking organisation dedicated to PostgreSQL
The European organisation for PostgreSQL
The main Free Software organisation in France
The organisation promoting Free Software and culture
The organisation promoting French open source companies
Confédération générale des Scop
The French Cooperatives Confederation
