What does open source mean?

 

Open source refers to software in which the developer has made the source code (ie the code that runs the program) available for modification and edit.

Sometimes open source software can either be free or require a paid license. 

Here are some of the advantages of working with an open source software;

  1. It allows developers to build on something that already has strong foundations eliminating a lot of development hours from a project
  2. It is extremely flexible and able to be tailored to the specific use case
  3. If it has a large community of users, there is often a lot of great innovation happening around the product

One of the most well known open source softwares is WordPress.
