Friends of Red Gate

FoRG logo

At Red Gate, we think our relationship with the technical community is incredibly important, so we created the Friends of Red Gate program to show our respect for valued and prominent members of the communities we work closely with.

The Friends of Red Gate program is aimed at active and influential community members (such as popular blog writers and community site owners) as well as SQL, .NET, and ALM MVPs who are experts in their respective fields. They have clear ideas and opinions about the technologies they work with, and know Red Gate and our products.

The program allows them to use and review Red Gate's tools through the provision of NFR licenses. Through this, they become better informed about our products' capabilities, and thus more able to help others within the community whose problems could be solved by the use of our tools.

We provide our Friends with regular updates on the latest Red Gate news and often ask for feedback on new products. We also give our Friends the opportunity to speak on our behalf at events and user group meetings, and to write articles and blog posts for us.

We like to meet new friends

But we'll just have to wait at the moment, because the program is currently full for the first part of 2014. If you're interested in joining the program, please contact for more information, and let us know why you'd like to be involved.
