In the technology world, “open source” is the term given to software for which the original source code is made freely available to anyone, allowing it to be redistributed and modified.  Because open source now comprises 80% – 90% of the code in a “typical” application, our next guest says the need to learn more about it has never been more vital.  Which is why our next guest is bringing an open source conference to our state.

Mike Switzer interviews Sergio Aparicio, Economic Business Development Manager for the City of Columbia’s Office of Economic Development and the lead co-organizer for Open Source 101 coming to Columbia on April 18th.
