Today we’re thrilled to release the flox CLI beta to the public as an open source project and announce a Series A funding round led by NEA, with participation from Hetz Ventures, Addition, and angels such as Thomas Dohmke (GitHub CEO), Guy Podjarny (Snyk founder), and James Turnbull (former VP Docker, CTO Sotheby's). You can try out the flox CLI here and check out the repo on GitHub.
