Fathoming Open Source Softwares

Tanvi Chavan, Ashish Jaiswal

Abstract


Open Source Software development technically implies that the owners of the software publish their software's source code online. They give permission to anyone over the internet to use, alter, modify or distribute their software.Programmers, with access to the source code, use this opportunity to modify the software by fixing parts of code that arenot working appropriately or changing it. Open-source software usually comes with a license that helps programmers to customize the software to their own needs and manage how it is delivered. Overall, it implies that open source software is crowd-sourced. This paper talks about what open source software technically indicates, the advantages it offers, how it works and manymore.
