UNDERSTANDING THE REAL VALUE OF OPEN SOURCE WITH NOPCOMMERCE
Open Source. Developers hear about it a lot. What should you really look for and why? For example, I choose to study nopCommerce, a .NET eCommerce solution, which has led to some amazing opportunities. nopCommerce has a familiar architecture, a plug-in model, and an active community. This is a fast paced walk-through of the nopCommerce architecture and source code. More importantly, you will discover the many ways to get involved with any other open source software to better your career and life.
