National Seminar on Open Source: Opportunities in Entrepreneurship ver 2.0
Open Source software is catching fancy of millions of technocrats around the world. A lot of emphasis is being laid on developing applications based on Open Source, which are either free or are available at nominal costs. This is coming out as a big opportunity to developers and users alike. It is estimated that by 2015, Open Source Market will assume 37% market share of overall development scenario. This needs for deep introspection both at micro and macro level so that the true potential of Open Source can be explored and entrepreneurs are prepared with right mindsets.
