We don’t walk alone, nor do you!
Why would you care?
You use open-source technology on daily bases and may are not even aware of it.
Most of the software you use today has been built using open-source technology; one example would be that Google and YouTube (to name a few) are mounted on linux based servers; another example would be the apps on your phone which most likely use open-source libraries to utilize certain functionality.
Why do we care?
We wouldn’t be able to do the work we do without open-source. From programming languages, IDEs, development frameworks, database engines, graphic components, functionality libraries and more. Saying that a developer don’t use open-source technology would be a false statement.
We appreciate the easiness of developing by using open-source and, in return, we also contribute the community with frameworks, packages and plugins of our own crafting for everyone to use.
The myth says “to avoid open-source solutions for the lack of support“; while in some cases this might be true (some solutions are poorly coded or has no support) the majority of open-source projects have a much strong support and larger development community to back it up than most of all closed software.
Check out our open-source WordPress framework, or our public repositories at Github or our free plugins at WordPress.org to appreciate our love and care with the development community.
