The GNOME Foundation are pleased to announce the first platinum sponsor for GUADEC 2017 – Codethink! Codethink is a longtime supporter of the project and is headquartered in Manchester, UK, the same city where GUADEC is hosted this year.

They specialise in system-level software engineering to enable advanced technical applications, working across a range of industries including automotive, medical, telecoms and finance. Their customers are international-scale organizations who seek competitive edge through design of enterprise appliances and embedded systems which are faster, smaller, more secure, more up-to-date, or more advanced than their competitors.

As experts in Free and Open Source Software, Codethink helps customers take maximum advantage of the knowledge and technologies developed in upstream communities including GNOME. Vala, GLib, GTK+, Glade, Flatpak, Tracker, and Gstreamer are just a few of the GNOME technologies that Codethink developers have hacked on in recent years.
