Welcome to

Robot Framework Foundation

Maintaining and promoting Robot Framework

Who we are

Robot Framework is a generic open source test automation framework for acceptance testing and acceptance test-driven development (ATDD). For more details about the framework itself see http://robotframework.org.

Robot Framework Foundation is a non-profit consortium that fosters the growth of Robot Framework. It was founded by Finnish companies with a common interest to ensure the development of framework now and in the future.

At the moment we can only accept member requests from Finnish companies and other organizations. We do, however, support the whole open source community, and hope to be able to accept both private members and members from other countries in the future.

What we do

We sponsor the development of Robot Framework with the focus on fixing bugs, reviewing pull requests by the community and making releases. New feature development and sponsoring other projects in the wider Robot Framework ecosystem can also be considered if we are able to collect enough sponsorship money. We also take care of the overall Robot Framework infrastructure including public web sites, email lists and CI servers. Finally, we promote Robot Framework by organizing meetups for users and otherwise.

The money for all these activities is collected from members as yearly payments.

How to join

The main benefit of being a member is assuring the future of Robot Framework. A more concrete benefit is that these member companies and organizations are listed here, making their Robot Framework knowledge or usage more visible for possible new clients, employers and other parties.

If the company or organization you represent is interested to join or you have any questions related to the membership, please send an email to robotframework-foundation@googlegroups.com and we will get back to you. As already noted, we unfortunately cannot yet accept members outside Finland.

Annual membership fees (VAT 0%)
Number of users Service providers Product companies
1–10 1 000 € 500 €
11–50 2 000 € 1 000 €
51–250 4 000 € 2 000 €
251– 8 000 € 4 000 €

Annual membership fees are determined based on two factors: (1) number of people using, selling services or otherwise involved with Robot Framework; (2) is the organization a service provider selling Robot Framework related services, or is it a product company using the framework to test its own products.

If an organization joins mid-year, the fee for the first year drops 25% per quarter. In the first quarter you pay the full price, in the second quarter 75% of the full price, and so on.
