Open source: Driving Tomorrow’s World

A famous Open Source quote:

“On proprietary platforms, eventually you’ll run into ‘you can’t do that.’ On open platforms, you’ll run into ‘you have to learn more to do that.’”

Open source is a term which is normally interpreted wrongly. Most people think open source software are those which are available free and whose source code is available to the users. Apart from cost and source code there a lot of other conditions which open source software need to comply to. These include:

  • Free redistribution
  • Derived works
  • Available to everyone
  • All businesses can use them
  • Must not have restriction on other software
  • Must be technology neutral

Apart from this other advantages of using Open source Software are scalability and robustness, large support community and protection of propriety data. Open Source software generally is distributed under a license that guarantees the right to read, modify, redistribute and use the software freely. Open source software may be developed by community of programmers interested in developing a software application for a specific purpose. More and more companies enter this field and today you have open source software for almost every field from Statistics to Bioinformatics. Companies also develop open source software and a few provide services using Open Source Software. One such company is DCKAP Technologies.

These purely depend on the client requirement and the webpage structure or the platform in which the proposed application is to run on, i.e., mobile or web application. PHP, ASP, JavaScript, Dot Net are some of the major coding languages used. Each language has its set of own distinct features. Also each language varies from other languages in terms of functioning and requires an in depth understanding of the technology to be used for the development process. In case of website creation, each of these requires different set of software applications to run the server.

Web application development is a specialized skill which involves development, maintenance and updation of software applications to be used in creation of web pages. As with each of these languages, even each of the web applications differ from others in terms of functions and uniqueness.
