about the site
gdgt was launched in 2009 by Peter Rojas and Ryan Block, with the help of some pretty incredible investors, like True Ventures, Spark Capital, Betaworks, SV Angel, AOL Ventures, Lerer Ventures, and Jason Calacanis (to name a few!). gdgt was acquired by AOL in early 2013.
We take advantage of a lot of really great open source projects, including: Apache, Debian, Gearman, jQuery, memcached, MongoDB, MySQL, PHP, and Sphinx, to name a few. We owe the folks behind these projects a big debt of gratitude. If you're a contributor to these projects, get in touch, we'd love to buy you a beer.
We also make use a number of great services, including: Bitgravity, Dyn, GitHub, MailChimp, Message Bus, and Rackspace.
Of course, if you're the kind of person who likes building rad stuff with those kinds of tools, have we mentioned that we're hiring?
