Facebook sponsors Apache Foundation
Facebook is working towards giving more back to the open source development community by becoming a Gold sponsor of the Apache Software Foundation, reports Softpedia.
"From the day Mark Zuckerberg started building Facebook in his Harvard dorm room in 2004, the site has been built on common open source software such as Linux, Apache, memcached, MySQL, and PHP," says David Recordon, Facebook`s senior open programs manager.
The social network will donate $40 000 per year to the foundation to become a Gold sponsor. Facebook says it owes a lot to the open-source community and the technologies it developed.
