The Open Source Movement is responsible for creating some of the most valuable software of the 20th and 21st centuries. It gave us successes such as Sendmail, Linux, GCC, Apache Server, Eclipse, Git, Firefox, MySQL, Drupal, Python, WordPress, Hadoop, and Open Stack, just to name a few. All were developed using a loosely coupled, widely distributed, open development model. While economists and sociologists continue to scratch their heads trying to make sense of it all, one thing no one refutes: the Open Development model has been very successful. The question is: Can companies deploy this method for internal development to obtain similar successes? Wind River is conducting a pilot project to test the hypothesis that we can. We will discuss why the Open Development model works internally, how it fosters innovation and the benefits to both individual engineers and the company collectively.
