Why OSI? Featured sponsor, Open Weaver

Open Weaver is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) startup developing software that uses artificial intelligence to help developers build world-class applications easier and faster through reusing millions of open source libraries. Open Weaver’s platform, kandi, helps developers find and share Open Source reusable repos, libraries, collections, code snippets, source code, and reuse, author solution kits. Open Weaver is headquartered in New York, with operations across the US and India.

We asked Open Weaver to share the organization’s intrinsic ties to Open Source, its reasons for supporting the Open Source Initiative, and its hopes for the Open Source movement. Here’s what they said:

Open Weaver believes Open Source software is central to the future of digital innovation. We are already enabling developers to develop applications faster by reusing Open Source, and there is a significant opportunity to accelerate digital innovation through it.

There are three core benefits to Open Source we see as key to that innovation:

  1. Open Source is the best codification of the world’s technology knowledge that is available to the public today.
  2. Open Source significantly reduces risk by enabling developer participation in the roadmap.
  3. Open Source accelerates diverse innovation through democratizing development across global developers.

The Open Source Initiative plays a defining role in bringing together Open Source advocacy, education, and governance that are critical in the growth of Open Source. Organizations derive significant benefits by consuming Open Source software, and contributing back to the Open Source community is critical to nurturing the long-term benefits and innovation made possible through Open Source.

Open Weaver is a sponsor of OSI and we encourage organizations that also use Open Source to support OSI and its mission to educate about and advocate for the benefits of Open Source. We look forward to collectively making Open Source software easier to find and reuse in 2022.
