Open source in IT industry refers to something that is available freely. Likewise open source software is one that could be inspected, enhanced or modified freely. In technical parlance, open source implies a software or program in which the source code is available for use or modification without the involvement of any cost. It is now a collaborative effort where programmers improve upon a code within the community.
Platforms that we work on:
WorPress is an open source online CMS (content management system) or website making tool based on PHP. It is perhaps the simplest and most powerful blogging programs in use. It offers you the freedom to create features, designs and contents as per your desire.
This is a theme based tool allowing users to alter the appearance and functionality of a website as and when required, without bringing any changes to site content or core code. WordPress gives you access to nearly 49,400 plugins; each with its customized features and functions. Customizations could be related to display features, content management systems, navigation bars, or addition of widgets.
Magento is also a PHP based tool. It is essentially an open source e-commerce platform allowing users smooth navigation and improving viewer to buyer conversion ratio. Easy customization, better code base, enterprise level scalability, enhanced page caching, and improved performance are features that have made Magento a vital website building tool.
Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML) 5, as the name suggests is a mark-up language and not a programming language like WordPress or Magento. This language is used for structuring and organizing content for WWW (World Wide Web). The 5th version comes with a more exhaustive set of technologies which allow more powerful and diverse web applications. Its application is most distinctively felt in multimedia applications
The drawback of HTML is overcome by the dynamic nature of AngularJS. This is an instrument for creating a framework for development of applications that are dynamic, expressive and extensive.
