Take the open source road
Open source has become more than just an element in the software industry — some would even argue that open source represents the future of this industry. As Jorge Ferrer, VP of Engineering at Liferay told JAXenter, “all the great disruptive trends of the last decade have been strongly driven by open source.” We agree with him, which is why this issue is all about open source.
First, we learn more about open source tools, then we talk about what makes an open source project succeed. We answer the question “Who should fund open source project?” and we clarify the differences between open and closed source software.
