The free and open source revolution in the software industry is a great example of the importance and value of volunteer collaboration. From its inception, HotWax Systems has actively promoted the sharing of open source initiatives and has committed to use open source softwares/products to build and deliver solutions for various industry segments.
In support of our ongoing commitment to improving Apache OFBiz and to supporting the open source community, HotWax Systems conducts OFBiz Bug crush Events on the third Saturday of every month.

Consistent effort really pays off! In the past 30 days, the team has resolved 70 issues, so we’re definitely on track to resolve hundreds of issues during OFBiz Bug Crush Events in 2015.
HotWax Systems continues to demonstrate a real-world commitment to support the open source revolution by launching Apache OFBiz Accelerator, an open source, enterprise-class, digital commerce platform that offers complete ownership and control with absolutely no licensing fees.
