“Open Source is a community where original source code designed by various authors is made freely available to others who would like to view that code, copy it, learn from it, alter it, or share it. Today, it is the need of the hour,” said Kapoor while speaking about the significance of open source.

“We are glad to have the leaders of the Open-Source Community as our community partners. Their rich global experience will provide the requisite knowledge and skills to our students and the youth from the Tricity. This initiative has been designed to benefit and serve the society by providing youth, professionals and students to come together and work on ideas,” said Madhu Chitkara, pro-chancellor of Chitkara University.
