About DotNetNuke®

"Our mission is to create opportunities and spread entrepreneurship to the world by providing a superior open source web application framework which cultivates a passionate developer community as well as a prosperous commercial ecosystem."

DotNetNuke® is an open source web application framework ideal for creating, deploying and managing interactive web, intranet and extranet sites. Based on its liberal open source licensing model, DotNetNuke® has become the Microsoft industry standard framework for constructing enterprise web applications. The mass appeal of the open source model is largely based on the fact that it reduces the total cost of ownership and increases flexibility, factors which are crucial to the success of any organization. The exponential growth of the project ecosystem is a testament to the fact that the application satisfies the broadest set of customer requirements, and has the most innovative and committed management team. For the past 4 years, DotNetNuke®'s capabilities have been aggressively driven by community feedback, strategic partnerships, and market demand.

The DotNetNuke® project was founded on pure open source ideals. These principles permeate every aspect of the project and are fundamental to its business philosophy. At its core, DotNetNuke® believes that every organization, company, or individual should have access to high quality, functional software under the most liberal license possible, regardless of their industry focus, geographical location, culture, resources, technical aptitude, or financial capabilities. But the freedom does not stop there. DotNetNuke® believes that its valued members should have the right to participate in premium service programs which are focused on their specific needs. The combination of these influences provides the basis for a strong and healthy core foundation, resulting in a vibrant community ecosystem that is ultimately supported "by the people, for the people."

About Open Source

The basic idea behind Open Source is very simple: When programmers can read, redistribute, and modify the source code for a piece of software, the software evolves. People improve it, people adapt it, and people fix bugs. And this can happen at a speed that, if one is used to the slow pace of conventional software development, seems astonishing.
