What is Open-source software?📖
Open-source software is software whose source code is freely available to anyone who wants to view, use, modify, or distribute it.
Anyone can contribute to the development, making it better, more secure, and more reliable over time.🛣️
To take advantage of any open-source software you still need coding experience but you are welcome to have a crack at it.
By contributing to open-source software projects, we work with people from all over the world, learn new skills, and build reputations in the tech community. It’s much better to showcase our skills rather than talk about it.🕯️
Plus, you get to be part of something bigger than yourself and create software that can benefit everyone.
Big companies are also starting to realize the benefits of using and contributing to open-source software.
By doing so, they can leverage the expertise of their community and create more secure, reliable, and innovative software. Which in most cases is very rewarding for engineers who can crack the code or find the solution.💸
