Supporting Open Source

What is Open Source?

Open source refers to open licensing of software source code allowing developers to see the actual code that the software is written with.  Open source projects allow developers to focus on improvements and enhancements to software packages while the core of the software is maintained by a larger community of developers.

Open source doesn't necessarily mean that the software is available free of charge, and free software may not have its code available to view as open source.   However, because open source projects allow so many developers access to the core code of a software package users can find a tremendous amount of depth and reliability in open source projects.  On some projects thousands of community members contribute the success of the project through testing, developing and contributions.

The biggest value in open source is that it democratizes software and lets users find a tremendous array of high quality feature rich software applications at a fraction of the cost of proprietary solutions. 

We support open source software and platforms for most of our development work.  You can liken open source platforms to fresh organic fruit grown in a local farm, it is much more likely to be fresh and healthy and not corrupted by needless additives.  To that end, wherever possible we try to employ open source platforms and minimize our reliance on proprietary software.
