Hi, I’m Chris from Webarchitects Co-operative, I mostly do sysadmin / devops stuff using Ansible and Bash.
We have been going for over 20 years now, hosting a variety of good causes.
We are a multi-stakeholder co-operative made up of workers, clients, partners and (potentially!) investors, our rules are here:
Individual and organisations can join for a minimum for a £1 share:
And membership allows access to our (rather new and not used much) members Discourse forum:
And also our, quite popular (organisations have joined just to use it) GitLab CE server at
git.coop which has CI setup to spin up Debian Stretch Docker images by default:
Our code is mostly here:
We are quite strict about only using Free software:
Over the last two years we have been co-operating a lot with other tech co-ops in the UK (some of which make a lot of use of Free software, other make a lot of use of non-Free software), Co-operative Technologists and they also have their own (open) Discourse server, which has quite a nice community around it:
