Open Sourcing May Be Worth the Risk

Mobify’s CEO, Igor Faletski, shares some of the lessons we learned going open source with Mobify.js in the Harvard Business Review.

“In early 2012, my company made the decision to open source a key piece of our technology platform. We open sourced Mobify.js, our core framework that enables web developers and designers to create a mobile-friendly version of their website. “Open sourcing” means to make software’s source code publicly available, so that anybody can recreate the software or modify it to make their own version.”
