Open source development is the procedure by which open source software, or comparable software whose source code is openly available, is developed. These are software products available with the source code under an open – source license to study change and improve its design. Examples of some open source software products are Mozilla Firefox, Google Chromium, Android, and LibreOffice Suite. Open source software development has been a large part of the creation of the World Wide Web. As we distinguish it with Tim Berners – Lee causative his HTML code development as the original platform upon which the internet is now built. An individual who senses the need for a project announces the intent to develop a project in public. A developer working on a incomplete but working codebase, announcements it to the public as the first version of open source program. The source code of a mature project is released to the public. A well-established open - source project can be forked by an interested outside party. It is hard to run an open source project following a more traditional software development method like the waterfall model, because in these traditional methods it is allowed to go back to a previous face.
