Thank you for applying to the Gitpod Open Source plan!

As a Linux Foundation member, you automatically get 2500 credits per user per month in your project’s organization on Gitpod Cloud.

What is Gitpod?

Gitpod’s developer platform provides on-demand cloud development environments (CDEs) to create software faster and more securely. CDEs are pre-configured with all tools, libraries and dependencies needed to write and review code. They can be easily duplicated and shared across teams.

Learn more about CDEs in our latest white paper.
