Open Source ABCs: Android

Welcome to Day 3 of our #100DaysOfOSS series. Until October 31, we'll be doing Open Source Software (OSS) terms from A to Z. We'll be diving into a different letter of the English alphabet, uncovering OSS concepts, and sharing our thoughts on them.

Today, we're covering the letter "A" for Android.

Android: Android is an open-source operating system designed primarily for mobile devices. It provides developers with the freedom to modify and customize the platform, fostering a vast ecosystem of apps and device compatibility.

Now, we want to hear from you! What other OSS terms can you think of that start with the letter "A"?

Remember to use the hashtag #100DaysOfOSS if you share on social media, and don't forget to tag us @saucedopen so we can follow along.
