Scotch IO Acquired by Digital Ocean
Few days ago we've heard a news of Digital Ocean acquiring Scotch.io & Scotch.io has joined the Digital Ocean family.
We’re excited that the DigitalOcean community is growing by leaps and bounds, and we’re immensely grateful for the developers worldwide who make it what it is. A sincere and heartfelt thanks to all of you.Tim Falls, Director of Community @ DigitalOcean
Background of Scotch.IO
Scotch IO is a place where developers could help developers by sharing knowledge, tips, and tactics to get better at their craft. They were passionate about education: they wanted everyone to learn not only how to get better at coding, but to understand the deep decisions at the heart of creating awesome code. An internal goal for Scotch IO has always been to “explain why, not just how.”
Scotch community would grow to more than two million developers visiting every month. As of today, Scotch is home to more than 1,800 tutorials and articles produced by their amazing and talented community around the world.
So, what Happens to Scotch
So is Scotch going away? No way! In fact, It’s getting even better for the community – and for everyone. Starting immediately, the paywall for all articles and tutorials on Scotch will be removed & all content will be free to anyone.
In addition, DigitalOcean will also showcase great Scotch tutorials as well so that even more developers can benefit from this diverse community’s expertise.
There’s a lot of work to do to help developers around the world. Joining the DigitalOcean Community will allow Scotch to continue the work that it’s been doing. More support for great authors, more quality content for developers, and a cleaner experience from learning to creating.
