Forrester: open source project explosion driving a "golden era" in app dev
An explosion in the number of open source technologies and projects is driving the new paradigm of application development in the mobile, cloud and big data era.
Of course, one would have to live under a rock not to notice the huge "app" industry around smartphones and tablets.
But Android is not the only open source game in town driving the innovation. jQuery, Phonegap, Hadoop, Sencha , Apache Cordova, dojo, Ehcache, Riak, Munin and OpenStack are among the many key open source technologies driving the new wave of innovation across the consumer space and enterprise markets, according to Forrester Research.
