Benefits of Open Source Practices

Michael K. Johnson
 Red Hat, Inc.

Speaker: Michael K. Johnson

  The Open Source software development community has developed a set of software development practices and methodologies that have contributed to the success on the Open Source model. The HEP software development community has faced challenges such as divergent development, narrow design constraints, limited communication, and competitive pressures that may be ameliorated by Open Source development practices. These practices can be used to good effect in any project, but work best for Open Source software. Particularly with good modularization techniques, software developed by the HEP community might be of general utility and thus the HEP community might be able to share the maintenance burden of some parts of its software with outside developers by writing Open Source software and adopting Open Source development practices.
