As new products and technologies are emerging at an exponential pace, it is increasingly more difficult for people to keep up. One might be asking “what does the future hold?”. Where is this entire extraordinary technology buzz heading?
But what do open source technologies bring new? Well, for one thing, flexibility. With the help of HTML5, any web developer can create graphics, web pages, animations, and much more, without having to rely on Flash. Add to this the fact that open source software is often created in a public and collaborative matter, and you have all the ingredients to why this is such a successful recipe.
In other words, innovation and flexibility are the keys to succeed in the future. This is a lesson that everyone in the IT business, in any business actually, must embrace. A new gadget or technology product might be created tomorrow and you might find your work field outdated almost immediately.
Steve Jobs couldn’t have pointed it out better: “The times they are a changin, and some traditional PC folks feel like their world is slipping away.” It is!
