10 Open Source Technologies That Are Changing the World

Open-source technologies are basically the types of computer software in which the source code is released under a license where the copyright holder allows permission to the users for studying, changing as well as distributing the software to anyone and for any purpose. The open-source technologies are actually developed in a collaborative public manner.

Open Source Technologies List

So, here is a list of open source technologies that are changing the world to a great extent which is as follows.


Swift is a top-ranked open-source software that has a very big and largely growing community behind it. One of the best parts about Swift is that it is compiled to LLMV bytecode which necessarily makes sure that none of the CPU styles are ever wasted. The software borrows heavily from the functional languages and goes a long way from the classic object-oriented programming languages like C and Java. Moreover, it has automatic reference counting for memory management which is an added advantage.


Kotlin is another of the top-ranked in the open source technologies list which is basically the modern life of the less verbose alternative to Java on the JVM. It is a very good language and gained a lot of popularity through Android at the time Google made it one of its official languages for its operating system. It is multi-platform which means it can be easily compiled to JVM, LLVM as well as JavaScript and is certainly one of the best IDEs at present.


Kubernetes became very popular when Google open-sourced the same to one of their internal projects Borg. Then it caught the attention of all and it led to the future for the running systems in the cloud as well as on-premise. It comes with a declarative infrastructure which means that the error-prone manual configuration of the system would be done with. The distribution systems of Kubernetes are more resilient thereby making it a lot easier to build one.


Elixir is a dynamic functional language that is built on the rock-solid Erlang VM thereby benefitting from the ecosystem as well as the stability hence finding a top spot on the open-source technologies list. It is a highly functional language with immutability by default and the Phoenix Framework works really great.


ELM is simply a delight open source technology which is basically a very simple programming language and offers a guarantee as well as assurance like no others. ELM is also very specific on whatever problems that it solves and is frontend oriented. It is quite a solid system which makes the refactoring quite easy with the guidance of the compiler making it even more convenient. Moreover, the zero runtime exceptions in practices with a built-in toolkit make it just ideal for the intended purpose of use.


Talking about the top ten of the open-source technologies list, Flutter is undoubtedly a part of it. Flutter makes it quite easy for the building up of native UIs which otherwise would be a very difficult task where about four to five operating systems might be required. Flutter is just great for the purpose of building performant mobile applications and its hot reload feature helps in quick as well as easy experimenting, building UIs, the addition of features and fixing of bugs.


Redis is another member of the top ten open source technologies list which is BSD licensed. It is an in-memory data structure store that is used as a database, message broker and cache. It readily supports data structures like hashes, lists, strings sets, sorted sets with range queries, hyper log logs, bitmaps along with geospatial indexes with radius queries and streams. Redis is just too fast and has an extremely versatile toolkit. It has a very small API surface and it is very intuitive. Redis also offers bindings to almost all of the programming languages and is scalable through its high availability as well as automatic partitioning.


TensorFlow is actually the machine learning toolkit of Google and an end-to-end open-source platform for machine learning. It has a highly comprehensive and flexible ecosystem of tools, community resources as well as libraries which allows the users to incorporate the state of art machine learning in their system and at the same time allows the developers to very easily build as well as deploy applications that are powered by machine learning.


Another of the topper in the list of open source technologies is Istio. It is quite a high performing software which is written on top of Envoy that is C++. It offers great help in solving most of the problems that come up with microservice-based architectures. It has a sidecar pattern design which means less code and less error-prone in each of the microservices.


The ELK or the elastic stack is actually the acronym for the three of the open-source projects that are Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana. It is undoubtedly a member of the open-source technologies list. Elasticsearch is a search as well as an analytics engine. On the other hand, Logstash is a data processing pipeline on the server-side which ingests data from a number of sources at the same time transforms it and ultimately sends it to a stash like Elasticsearch whereas Kibana allows the users to visualize data with the help of charts as well as graphs Elasticsearch.
