Open source is more than a community. Is the contribution, effort, knowledge and hours of work for people over the world. Is the big result of little grain of sand for each one. We demonstrate our free commitment to contributing and learn
For me, it is the collaboration of many people in the World. People all working together to create the perfect software by gathering all the great ideas and implementing the very best ones into it. Not matter how big or small, every contribution works towards something better.
Software whose source code is open and accessible, and which can be modified to one's needs. Open source code also ensures to optimize software development, and enable a large number of freelancers to apply their best practices and get engaged.
