What is Silex Labs ?
Silex Labs is a non profit organization dedicated to helping open source communities. Our main objective is to share, sustain and expand open source projects.
We organize workshops, contributhons, conferences and afterworks.
We are heavily involved in the creation and the development of open source projects.
We believe that contributions and events can change everyone’s life :
By creating the best tools available on the internets and keeping them free.
By giving people a better understanding of the new technologies and how to use them.
Share our inspiration with everyone and teach our knowledge.
Help people take control over their digital and professional lives.
Contribute for a free and better World Wild Web.
Build human networks and inspire people.
If you want to change the world, contribute and show others how good it is to contribute. We are hiring the best volunteers who want to share opinions, knowledge, good time…

We supports several projects and events. Our goal is to help projects expand and be sustainable. The projects are mostly technically close and complementary, so that the communities can influence and benefit from each other. For example, Haxe and Amfphp are upstream projects for Cocktail and Silex.
Our projects are documented in order to be usable by other people in other places. We intend to mix communities of different projects and mix people from different places and professional backgrounds.
In the page about Silex Labs services, you will find examples of what we do for open source projects since 2009 with a growing team of volunteers and tech enthusiasts from all kind of professional backgrounds.
