Lead Maintainer of GORM, Jinzhu, Awarded a Chainlink Community Grant

The Chainlink Community Grant Program provides financial resources to the many development teams and researchers building a more functional and accessible Chainlink Network. We encourage talented individual developers and development teams to apply to the grant program here, or if you are a researcher and want to collaborate, contact us.

We’re excited to announce that Jinzhu, the lead maintainer of GORM—an open-source ORM library for the Golang programming language—has been awarded a Chainlink Community Grant. This grant will financially support the continued maintenance and development of GORM, one of the most widely used libraries for Golang—a broadly adopted open-source programming language for backend development and the primary language of the Chainlink Core client. Not only will this grant support key developer tooling to enhance the functionality and usability of the Chainlink Network, but it will help the broader ecosystem of open-source developers around the world who rely on Golang every day to run mission-critical software.

GORM is an open-source software library for the Golang programming language that aims to provide Object-Relational Mapping (ORM)—a programming technique that allows developers to convert between two normally incompatible data types. ORM software vastly simplifies the Golang developer experience, allowing for quicker, more efficient development of advanced applications.

Jinzhu is the lead maintainer of the GORM project and a prolific contributor to open-source software, having provided over 2,300 code contributions to 91 different repositories on GitHub over the past year. Located in Hangzhou, China, Jinzhu ensures the GORM software library is functioning as expected in the most developer-friendly way possible by continuously adding new and improved functionalities and tooling that can be leveraged by anyone in the Golang ecosystem. We are proud to recognize and encourage Jinzhu in his work through direct financial support from the Chainlink Community Grants program, empowering Golang ...
