New White Paper - Using Open Source for Your Website

Almost daily we help people evaluate Open Source resources for use in their projects. We've found that there are a lot of myths and misconceptions out there that make reaching a decision harder than it should be. To help even more people out there, CommonPlaces has developed a new, concise 9-page white paper titled "Using Open Source for Your Website." It highlights the benefits and responsibilities of using open source software for your next Web project. You can download it for free, here.

Using Open Source for Your Website

For anyone that reads this blog regularly, it will come as no surprise that we are big proponents of open source software, and use it to develop our clients' web applications. More specifically, we develop most of our Web projects in the Drupal CMS. We've spoken at length about the strengths of Drupal, here and in other places, but for many of our potential clients, the biggest obstacle to overcome is choosing open source over more traditional proprietary solutions. For those not familiar with open source, the entire model can seem very different at first, and in many ways, it is. We created this white paper to help people who are weighing the benefits and drawbacks of open source software, and hopefully help them reach the right decision for their needs, regardless of whether they end up choosing open source or a proprietary solution. While we believe strongly in the open source model, we do recognize that it may not be right for all people in all cases. Download our white paper to learn more.
