"Packt today announced that its donations to open source projects have surpassed the $300,000 mark. Following its first donation to the phpMyAdmin project in April 2004, the company has gone on to provide sustained support for over 70 different open source projects.

"Packt has introduced initiatives such as the annual Open Source Award and Open Source Project Royalty Scheme to provide sustained donations to projects over the last six years.

""Most of the money that we've used, donated from Packt has gone towards running jQuery conferences for the community and bringing together the jQuery team to do development work together." said John Resig, the founder of the popular JavaScript library, jQuery. "The financial contributions have been very valuable and in that regard, have resulted in a team that's able to operate much more efficiently and effectively."
