Throughout the years Alagad has benefited greatly from open source software. So many of the tools we computer professionals use on a day-to-day basis are created and provided to us for free. We could never count, much less thank, every developer, designer, student, or corporation – or any other role for that matter – who have contributed to open source products Alagad has benefited from. We recognize that we are indebted to these people.
The best thing we can do to thank the open source community is to give back to it. Over the years we have contributed countless lines of code, offered financial support, and provided services free of charge for open source programs. We love to offer our support to this wonderful group of people.
We’re not alone here. You too have benefited from open source software, whether you know it or not. So much of our modern world operates on or is made possible by open source software that it boggles the mind.
No mater who builds your software, I guarantee you that what is made would not be possible without open source software. This may seem like a big claim to make, but it’s true. Open source is everywhere.
If you’re benefiting from open source software, shouldn’t you support it too? By working with Alagad you do. We have policy of sharing useful tools, libraries, and other materials that we create under liberal open source licenses.
Of course we would never dream of open sourcing your project. We would never share your data or your business secrets. However, when we build useful, generic, widgets as a small part of your application we will share it under an open source license so anyone else who might want to can use it.
