From Wikis to Ruby on Rails; How to Produce Content the Open Source Way
The Open Source software revolution, long the province of computer scientists and software developers (e.g., LINUX, Mozilla), now offers a wide spectrum of free, open source tools ranging from wiki builders to video and audio packages. Companies ranging from Ning and KickApps have benefited from the move to flexible, modular applications. New media producers are now the beneficiaries of an innovative movement that offers continuously improved software – thanks to the open source community – that can deliver lower costs and high-quality features for web and mobile apps; video editing and distribution; audio recording, and collaborative applications.
This session will provide a snapshot of the open source software movement’s key features for those producing in the virtual world.
