DailyDirt: Open Source Software In 2016

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Open source software (OSS) has been around for several decades now, and it serves as the foundation for many gadgets and online services that consumers use regularly. Google, Facebook, Twitter -- even some Apple devices -- use open source software. There may even be a growing trend to use open source, but proprietary software is never totally going away, folks. If you've been thinking about learning how to code, take a look at our Daily Deals for a collection of online courses to help you program and/or master some professional skills.

    Open Source

    I've used FOSS tools for 15 years, and Since I retired I haven't had to use proprietary tools. Even when I was working as a programmer I ran Windows on a Virtual Machine for programming in Visual Studio.

    I think the amount of money invested in OSS will just increase with more IT-companies coming up and world's start-up scene growing!

    And that is just awesome :)
