Microsoft Will Grant Azure Credits To Open Source Projects

Share post:

Microsoft has announced a new program that will provide Azure credits to Open Source projects for a year.

Any project in any technology with a license approved by the Open Source Initiative (OSI) can apply.

Developers can, however, use the Azure credits for testing, storage, or other development tasks, and they will have the choice to reapply for the credit in subsequent years.

According to Microsoft officials, the company already granted the credits grant to several large and small open source projects such as FreeBSD, Alma Linux, Haskell, Snakemate workflow management, and Promitor.

For a long time, the company has continued to release many of its products and services under open source licenses, while trying to lure open source developers in a variety of ways.

This is also one of the company’s different strategies, but those responsible explain the reasons for the credits grant as follows: “We are giving back to the open source ecosystem we participate in and depend on.” Those interested are advised to visit the Azure Credits website and apply.
