There is one misconception about open source software (OSS) which stubbornly prevails: Since OSS is for free, it doesn’t require any costs whatsoever. While the software itself is free of charge, the implementation and regular maintenance is not. Yet, there are many reasons why IT decision makers turn to OSS solutions. Learn why in this blog post.
Now, that the first month of the year has passed, we’re - again - happy to share the contributions to the TYPO3 project with you. We’d like to thank each and every one for your ongoing support and your devoted work. Here are January’s names and some impressive numbers.
Happy New Year to all of you! With 2018 now underway, we’d like to take the opportunity to thank all of the people who contributed to the TYPO3 core in December. Your engagement to the project is greatly appreciated and deserves special attention. Here's to you!
Due to the nature of code, software will never be entirely bug-free. However, a systematic review process ensures avoiding vulnerabilities and provides high-quality software. The code in a powerhouse CMS like TYPO3 is complex. If you’re running your site on an older version, keep it safe by opting for Extended Long Term Support (ELTS) and prolonging your website's lifespan.
As an open source software community we’re grateful for all of the ongoing contributions to the TYPO3 project through our creative and productive teams. Today, a special thank-you goes to all of our hardworking coders who were busy in November, and we’d like to share some of remarkable numbers with you!
Within OSS, it should be about collaboration, not competition. In aligning efforts and agreeing to solve specific issues using a common agenda open source software can be strengthened as a whole.
When it comes to open source software (OSS), content management systems (CMS) and doing business, some misconceptions stubbornly prevail. It's time to dispel a few of these myths.
Not too long ago, proprietary software ruled the roost when it came to websites. Meanwhile, the software landscape has been radically transformed by open source software. With this development, the call for professional support became louder and louder.
Open source software (OSS) projects often find themselves battling against each other when they should be collaborating. A win for one OSS solution is a victory for us all. Instead of fighting, we should be celebrating each other's wins and tackling our common enemy: proprietary software.
There are still lots of people who mistakenly believe that open-source software is just about saving money. It’s not. The move to open-source technology is a much more fundamental shift.
