How times have changed. In the old days, an article about open source software (OSS) typically starts off by defending OSS as a viable alternative to proprietary software. To make its argument, it would defer to the Apache web server and the Linux operating system, both OSS centerpieces. Back in those days, OSS is almost synonymous with nonprofit organizations such as the Apache Software Foundation, the Linux Foundation, and the Free Software Foundation. To justify the adoption of OSS to the skeptical world, one would focus on the return of investment and argues how OSS lowers the total cost of ownership.
This article is about the dawning of the new OSS generation. We argue that OSS will dominate the market, which is a far cry from just being a viable alternative.
January is always a time of conclusions. We evaluate a past year, remember its best moments, and hope that the new year will bring us even more positive moments.

The DrupalCon in Dublin is over – and now it’s officially. We all had fun, enjoyed sessions, sprints, visited all the booths, collected prizes, and had a lot of great talks with drupalists from all over the globe. All the expectations we had before this event came true, and now it’s time to make some conclusions.
Drupal as a Content Management System (CMS), is known for its versatility and power. Unfortunately, it is also known to have a steep learning curve. The task of mastering the building of a Drupal-powered website can be quite daunting to novice users. The good news is that many online resources are available to help you overcome the learning challenges.
A few month ago when I wrote my first article about Drupal, some people noticed that for listing essential security modules one should have more development experience. It’s true, when I’ve started working at Vardot, I had to interview many developers and site builders before writing every single blog post, but the topic I’ve chosen this time is my favorite.
Recently, many UI designers talk about system design guides, patterns, or atomic design approaches. Any followed methodology will result in saving time and effort. When you customize these approaches to meet your own designing methods and tools, it will cut the design process time into half and concentrate your efforts on what is important.
According to Outsourcing Statistics, more than 60% of the total outsourcing market is composed of IT/Software workers. Hiring developers from abroad really makes sense for a number of reasons: today it is hard to find a business that doesn’t require software services. The number of software projects is growing every year and the average salary of IT-professionals is relatively high.
