In this week's edition of our open source news roundup, we take a look at how open source is democratizing tech and a few upcoming open source events.
Open source is democratizing technology

In a recent Forbes article, Laurence Bradford stated, "It allows individual developers to benefit from and build off the work of entire development communities, harnessing that power instead of starting from scratch."
