What Is Open Source?

Open source is a collaborative development methodology and philosophy that is changing the way in which not just software but various forms of technology, art, and knowledge are developed and shared.

It refers to software or other products whose code or design is freely accessible and can be modified and distributed by anyone. Open-source software is typically developed by a community of contributors who work together to identify bugs, add features, and improve the overall quality of the project. By fostering collaboration, transparency, and community-driven development, open source encourages innovation and leads to better and more reliable products.
