THE US GOVERNMENT has released open source code that it has been working on.
In an unusual move for government transparency, the White House is letting developers get their mitts on its open source code. The US executive branch has been working on its custom code as part of its ongoing efforts to “develop an open platform for Whitehouse.gov.”
“This code is available for anyone to review, use, or modify. We’re excited to see how developers across the world put our work to good use in their own applications,” it announced.
