Open Source, Joomla and Magento by Espen Open Source, Joomla and Magento by Espen Presentation Transcript

  • What is Open Source, Joomla and Magento?
  • What is source code?
    Program instructions in itsoriginal form, usually in text files
    Contains instructions to computer on how to executestatements
    Source code is commonly converted into executable files(compiled) before deploymentand sale.
  • What is open source?
    Open source software is published under licenses that ensure that the source code is available to everyone to:
    Download
    Inspect
    Explore
    Change
    Compile new version
  • 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
