a worthwhile ongoing struggle

  • make sacrifices of small conveniences to use and help promote open source
  • volunteer your awesome people skills to help organise a conference, manage a user group or provide tutorials
  • give constructive and useful feedback to open source projects
  • keep using, recognizing and giving thanks to the open source software that you use
  • don't expect more than you're willing to give and be thankful when it exceeds your expectations

Preside

A growing competitor for mid to large-scale commercial content and data platforms; open sourced. We work openly and with integrity to create a platform for and with our community.

 

 

@dom_watson

Our mission

To build an out-of-box web application foundation that does as much of the laborious, hard and overlooked work for you, accelerating teams as they focus on unique requirements.

 

To build a community and platform that leads by example; that is a joy to use, a joy to work with and a joy to participate in.

Our vision

Preside solving complex needs for a wide breadth of industries and communities. A well-known name founded on openness and excellence.
