Zig Programming Language

ziglang
United States of America

Zig is a general-purpose programming language and toolchain for maintaining robust, optimal, and reusable software.

Resources

Zig Software Foundation

The Zig Software Foundation is a 501(c)(3) Not-For-Profit Corporation dedicated to promoting, protecting, and advancing the Zig programming language, supporting and facilitating the growth of a diverse and international community of Zig programmers, and providing education and guidance to students, teaching the next generation of programmers to be competent, ethical, and to hold each other to high standards.

By donating to ZSF, you are funding development of the Zig Programming Language and its ecosystem, which in turn benefits the greater open source community in general. Zig community members have landed bug fixes in LLVM, Wine, QEMU, musl libc, GDB and others.

ZSF is a small organization and makes efficient use of monetary resources. The plan is to keep it that way, but we do want to turn our unpaid volunteers into paid maintainers to help merge pull requests and make swifter progress towards 1.0. The whole point of ZSF being non-profit is to benefit people. We're trying to get open source maintainers paid for their time.

One-time donations and other questions
