Yesterday, Enarx, the open source security project of which I’m co-founder and for which Profian is custodian, gained its 750th GitHub star. This is an outstanding achievement, and I’m very proud of everyone involved. Particular plaudits to Nathaniel McCallum, my co-founder for Enarx and Profian, Nick Vidal, the community manager for Enarx, everyone who’s been involved in committing code, design, tests and documentation for the project, and everyone who manages the running of the project and its infrastructure. We’ve been lucky enough to be joined by a number of stellar interns along the way, who have also contributed enormously to the project.
Enarx has also been supported by a number of organisations and companies, and it’s worth listing as many of them as I can think of:
- Profian, the current custodian
- Red Hat, under whose auspices the initial development began
- the Confidential Computing Consortium, a Linux Foundation Project, which owns the project
- Equinix, who have donated computing resources
- PhoenixNAP, who have donated computing resources
- Rocket.Chat, who have donated chat resources
- Intel, who have worked with us along the way and donated various resources
- AMD, who have worked with us along the way and donated various resources
- Outreachy, with whom worked to get some of our fine interns
When it all comes down to it, however, it’s the community that makes the project. We strive to create a friendly, open community, and we want more and more people to get involved. To that end, we’ll soon be announcing some new ways to get involved with trying and using Enarx, in association with Profian. Keep an eye out, and keep visiting and giving us stars!
