Abre is open.
As in open source. The code is available for all to see, use, and modify for their systems. We believe learning works best when working towards a tangible end goal. We encourage students, staff, and the community at large to build apps that fit their particular needs. School communities guide Abre’s product direction.
We identify with the Open Source Initiative’s mission statement.
Open source is a development method for software that harnesses the power of distributed peer review and transparency of process. The promise of open source is higher quality, better reliability, greater flexibility, lower cost, and an end to predatory vendor lock-in.
