Introduction to Open Source
Open Source represents technologies that allow modification based on its design being publicly accessible. Its wide application in different areas including business, education, government, health, law and other disciplines of life allows its acceptability. The Open Source community is made up of those who believe that open participation and sharing can tackle the business, social, environmental, and technological challenges facing us today. Open source is not just a philosophy but also a culture.
Why Open Source Technology
The future of open source lies in the hands of those who create and use it.
A successful open source community consists of participants who both contribute to, as well as benefit from, shared content. Such networks of transparency, collaboration, and trust can be tremendously beneficial in other industries as well.
This mutually beneficial relationship creates a scenario where each participant can tap into the skills of others in the network while contributing their own skills to the mix. We believe open source is a step towards a model of economic interactions based on trusting relationships, a model which can create valuable results for everyone involved..
