Open Source Dropbox

Posted onby admin

Dropbox loves open source! We participate in the open source community by using open source software internally and open sourcing our own projects.


  • Dropbox is a file hosting service operated by the American company Dropbox, Inc., headquartered in San Francisco, California, that offers cloud storage, file synchronization, personal cloud, and client software. Dropbox was founded in 2007 by MIT students Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi as a startup company, with initial funding from seed accelerator Y Combinator.
