FEATURED OPEN SOURCE CONTRIBUTORS
Analyst, FP&A Engineering | "I find great joy when I contribute back to the open source community. Making contributions comes with such gratification, knowing that it has global impact. As an open source consumer, I enjoy contributing back to the open source community. No contribution is too small."
Analyst, Alloy Engineering | "Contributing to Legend is a great way for me to improve my tech stack, as it's backed by its own programming language. It also eliminates the necessity to write complex SQLs, making data modeling hassle-free, with which I discovered new ways of finding solutions that change the way we approach programming."
Software Engineer, Data Engineering | "The nature of our job is standing on the shoulder of the giants: we depend on open source projects. Contributing in the open source space inspires me and keeps me updated on the latest technologies and techniques. I also enjoy being a part of the direction in which open source projects evolve and making a direct impact within the tech community. My contribution efforts are currently dedicated to Legend Studio, an end-to-end data platform experience covering the full data lifecycle."
Goldman Sachs Open Source is one of the key aspects of our developer offering. It’s how we collaborate with the developer community and the way we give back, contribute and strengthen our position in technology.”
