A message about the importance of the NetBox community from NetBox Labs Co-founder and CEO Kris Beevers

Our Open Source Principles

Community first

At NetBox Labs, “Community First” is a core value. We serve our community. When our community wins, we win.

Virtuous circle

NetBox Labs leverages open source to generate commercial value and revenue, and reinvests in the community to create open source sustainability and scalability.

Big Tent

We believe in an open, composable technology ecosystem. We play well with other products and projects, and we don’t play favorites when it comes to working together on behalf of users.

Our Principles In Action

NetBox Labs acts on our open source principles by investing in our community and growing the thriving NetBox ecosystem ​

NetBox Community Fund

The NetBox Community Fund is a dedicated $100k funding pool committed by NetBox Labs to reward community contributions – a direct representation of our Virtuous Circle. Learn more about the Community Fund – check out the Fund’s announcement.

NetBox Plugin Ideas and Bounties

NetBox Labs curates an “Ideas Board” for NetBox Plugins based on input from the community, and pays bounties to developers of the most requested plugins.  Check out the NetBox Plugin Ideas Board, and read about our plugin bounty program.
