What Is A Software License?

Featured

The latest and greatest software is appealing. It does what older software releases could only wish to do. It is tempting to get a sketchy but free download without paying. That means your product is not licensed. A software license is a legal manner to obtain software. Such a license is a type of contract protecting the intellectual property of the software.

If you download or get a copy of software from a friend or colleague outside the legal license and distribution expectations, then you may be held responsible for legal fines down the road. Certainly there is free-ware, shareware, and other freely given software and applications. Though, it is an extension of the software developer’s rights to determine whether users receive software license for free or in exchange for $1 or $600.

It is considered copyright infringement and stealing if you do not follow the software developer’s explicit use of its software and expected payment. People who obtain software legally are granted end-user permission to download and use one or more copies of the software.

The user agreement generally dictates to what extent the end-user can utilize the software as well. It also delineates warranties, liabilities, and, limitations.

Do I Want To Be A Software Tester?

Featured

I have been looking at changing careers in the near future. One career that has always interested me has been software tester. Computers have always came easy to me, but sometimes I have issues.

One of the major things that has deterred me from this career path is the fact that software testers need to constantly learn new technologies as they become available. I am more of a tried and true software user.

My problem would lie in the fact that sometimes it takes me a little bit of time to learn the new platforms as they become available. I am sort of like an old horse that you can lead to water, but you can not make him drink.

I am not sure where I could fit into the software testing world since I have this problem. I would love to be paid to do what I love, but I can understand why I would not be hired.

It does not seem like this should be my new career, but maybe I could find somewhere in the software field that I could fit in and be useful. I would love to be able to make my mark on the software industry.

Why Open Source Software

So, you need to have your own online store. Is it going to be expensive to get started? Will you need web designers or an expensive solution to create that store? How big is the job?

If you don’t need to spend a small fortune on the software to create your online store and you do like to experhyment with your own web development you might consider doing it yourself with open source shopping cart software. This can create an entire online solution for your online store and can even be integrated with other programs like your shipping software. It can manage multiple currencies, it can be multilingual, it works with many payment programs and new features and functions are added all the time because there’s a community that collectively and separately works to improve this evolving program.

There are several options here. You may choose to buy a solution, use a turnkey open source e-commerce solution or you can start from scratch yourself with something like OSCommerce. Many novice internet online entrepreneurs get started with free tools that they build up to service their needs. Open source software can be a great solution for three reasons.

1. It’s free. Got no money for startup costs? This can be a good DIY solution.

2. It’s customizable so it can be tweaked to meet your specific needs.

3. There’s a huge online community that supports other users of this tool.

The downside to open source solutions

You generally don’t get free 24/7/365 support when you have problems in the open source world. You are at the mercy of the community and the knowledge base. Unless you need to pay for expertise, it can take time to navigate through the information available on the software and trouble shooting your store can be a bit labor intensive.

There are turnkey open source solutions that you can jump into and begin using and then add on your own modules and there are an abundance of online sources and tutorials as well as community forums where you can pose questions and share your expertise as you build it. You may find that your problems are minor and easily fixable. This will depend on many factors including what version of the software you are using, how many different modules you have, outside factors and how complex your store is.

Do you know enough about technology to get started? Anyone can do any dabbling but if you are anxious, you might need to buy a turnkey solution and going it alone might not be the right choice for you.

There are also products out there with the open source mindset but designed to be easier as a point and click solution. Products like Zen Cart claim to be easier to work with for the novice and there are many resources that work with OS Commerce but that allow you the best of both worlds: to dabble on your own and to have support.

In summary, if you need a low cost or free solution and are willing to put time and effort into learning the tool and contributing to the open source community, you can use this to your advantage. Do your homework and look at your technical abilities, your requirements for your online store and your time constraints for troubleshooting, trial and error. It’s a great idea to lurk on any OSCommerce forums before taking the plunge. This can help you determine whether you have the knowledge and desire to use this e-commerce tool.
