Build Or Buy

"Build or buy" refers to the decision making process of whether to "build" a piece of technology or "buy" it. For example, a computer hobbyist may prefer to build a new home PC while a casual consumer would prefer to buy a PC.

Also a prelude to the AntiPattern NotInventedHere in SoftwareDevelopment if the opportunity costs of building software do not exceed the benefits of purchasing an existing solution.
