About the Open Source Movement

Welcome to the heart of innovation and community: The Open Source Movement.

We exist to foster a global community where people are empowered to connect, create, share, and build upon each other’s work. Our mission is to advocate for open source philosophies, develop open standards, and support open source projects and contributors. We believe that technology should be accessible, transparent, and developed in a manner that serves the public good.


A world transformed by accessible technology, where anyone, anywhere, can contribute to, enhance, and use software without barriers. We envision a future where the democratization of technology accelerates human progress and equality.


  • Collaboration: United we innovate. We espouse a community-driven approach where everyone’s contribution holds value.
  • Transparency: Light breeds quality. Access to the source means everything is laid bare for improvement and trust-building.
  • Liberty: Power to the user. We stand for the liberty to use, study, modify, and disseminate software without restriction.
  • Inclusivity: All welcome, all included. Our movement grows with diversity of thought, culture, and expertise.
  • Education: Sharing is learning. Knowledge should be open, for it is the foundation on which skills are built and communities thrive.

Born from the minds that challenged proprietary constraints, the Open Source Movement has grown from a set of aligned principles to a global phenomenon. It dates back to the early days of shared computing endeavors and was crystallized into a formidable philosophy with the advent of the Internet, which allowed for unprecedented collaboration and distribution.

Whether you are a developer, an enthusiast, a student, or simply someone who believes in the power of openness, there’s a place for you in the Open Source Movement. Engage with us, contribute to a project, or help spread the word. Together, we can build a more open, innovative, and inclusive world.
