Only the name has changed

Several months ago, we announced that SourceForge (and Slashdot and FreeCode) were acquired by Dice Holdings. As part of that transition, the name of our parent company is changing this week. We’re now part of a parent company called Slashdot Media instead of Geeknet Media.

That’s all that’s changed. SourceForge is still dedicated to being your trusted source for Open Source, and will continue to provide free hosting for your Open Source project.

While you won’t see any changes to our services, or in our passion for Open Source, you may notice some changes to the site over the coming months. For example, in the right sidebar on project pages, you’ll see jobs in your area, provided by our partners Dice, the #1 technical job board website, with access to over 80,000 job listings around the world.

    Por favor, les agradecería una información un poco más detallada sobre esto. Seguirá siendo gratuito? Estará aún accesible para todos?

    Guys, like many, I guess, I looked at github for my next Open Source repository, I felt like every one it was the new trend and I believe it is. At the same time, I liked SF reaction regarding the Open Source community, no it’s not SF vs Github, it’s a matter of choice. I still have all my Open Source projects hosted on SF and I also have some hosted on github and I will support both of them because competition is vital to our community, it sane and healthy to have some. I am glad, Dice made a good move to buy SF, it’s the recognition that Dice is not only the pimp (that’s how we call our favorite recruiters, we – Developers – are their whores) on the block. I used Dice throughout my entire career (15 years span) and I am still getting food from them. Dice have tried to diversify eFinancialCarreer, and the rest, but they were smart enough to arrange the front-end, search, job filter and agent to keep their offer competitive.   Good job guys, and stay around we need you.
