A few months back I wrote a post titled "Why Open Source Matters: Musings from OSCON 2014". The post covered five reasons why Open Source matters. Those reasons were/are:
- Code, Glitches and Open Source Security
- Open Source Software
- The Stringent Control of Proprietary Software
- The Endless Ability to Test, Play and Alter
While those reasons still ring true, I want to use this space to center in on another topic speaking to why Open Source and OSS matters more than ever: project management and time constraints.
With OSCON taking place in Oregon from 7/20/2014 – 7/24/2014, the Open Source community will come together to discuss everything new in the Open Source world. From OSS to Java, Python to PHP, Cloud Computing to Perl and emerging programming languages to mobile platforms, the Open Source community has a lot to chat about.
This said, I wanted to take the time to discuss why the Open Source initiative matters by highlighting a few key elements of the protocol which help to make it so powerful.
