Undergraduate Capstone Open Source Projects

Development in an distributed open-source environment

Posted by Gabriel Roy-Lortie on 2009/10/23

My QA teacher recently pointed us to the following interesting paper. It describes a process framework for development in a distributed (optionally open-source) context. They call it Community-Agile software guidance.

Though no single process framework can apply to every projects, you’ll find that many recommendations in that paper are nowadays must-follow rules (those regarding quality in particular). I also like the way the author presents growing software as compared to a living creature that ought to be surrounded by an appropriate community in order to fully blossom and how that software needs to be guided toward maturity as it grows.

I believe it is a must-read to all of us doing distributed open-source development. Hope you enjoy as much as I did.
