    • 2. What is source code?
      Program instructions in itsoriginal form, usually in text files

      Source code is commonly converted into executable files(compiled) before deploymentand sale.

      Change
      Compile new version
    • 4. Commercial vs Open Source
      Commercial
      Compiled software
      Difficult to modify
      Nearly impossible to see how programmed
      See this as an advantage
      keeps other companies from copying their code and using it in a competing product
      gives them control over the quality and features found in a particular product
      Open Source
      Source code included with software
      Modification encouraged
      Source code and documentation shows how programmed
      Allowing anyone who is interested to modify the source code
      Democratic process
      Application will become more useful and error-free
