READ The Cathedral the Bazaar: Musings on Linux and Open Source BY an Accidental Revolutionary Autor Eric S. Raymond
This paperback by O reilly seems to ave suffered from a typographical blowout I ad to visit Raymond s website to complete missingdamaged portions of the had to visit Raymond s website to complete missingdamaged portions of the The contents are an excellent explanation of the open source paradigm of programming en masse and the motivation for writing software that is free from vendor lock in Considering the prevalence of open source software sometimes called free or libre
software every programmerevery programmer admin that deals with software should read this book Hopefully current prints are not as poor This books starts off with a very good istory of the development of the Linux operating software This open source development process started the author thinking about the two software development methods the Cathedral method where a large corporate structure Jane Addams hires programmers to develop software keeps the source code secret and charges large amounts to recoup it costs not from the original product development but from the expected legacy problems technical support bug fixing software updates etc On the otherand the bazaar method encourages open source software Open source software encourages a programmer or group within the Harry Potter for Nerds hacker community to gain ascendancy to possess and maintain and steer the software to keep it relevant The Author s point is that with most business models in the future the Cathedral method read Microsoft will not be able to compete with the Bazaar method read Linux In the Cathedral method the programmers must beired the bazaar method the The Mindset of Organization: Take Back Your House One Phase at a Time hackers are attracted to a problem become dedicated revisions and bugs areandled at internet speed The author tells of many real life business experiences companies ave ad adopting the open source method The middle of the book explains the URBAN ROMANCE hacker ethic andow the acker community operates The reader learns the true meaning of acker vs cracker and the true meaning of free software The author predicts that open source software will make deep in roads into the Fortune 500 companies That their investments in On Alchemy hardware and records may be dependent on one software company s decision to continue supporting that software revision is the problem Open source software would provide a proliferation ofacker communities willing to constantly update older software The author appears to know Civil Rights and the Environment in African American Literature 1895 1941 his stuff and progressively throughout the book the author lets it leak out thate is one of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens hacker community and is a playerspokesman in this software battle I found this book a real eye opener can Microsoft s workforce continue to support software like Windows 2000 with 60 million lines of code as opposed to Linux taking advantage of a worldwide army ofackers reporting bugs writing patches and keeping Timo l'Aventurier tome 1 hardware drivers updated Time will tell This bo. This isow we did it Linus Torvalds creator of the Linux kernelIt all started with a series of odd statistics The leading challenger to Microsoft's stranglehold on the computer industry is an operating system called Linux the product of thousands of volunteer programmers who collaborate over the Internet The software behind a majority of all the world's web sites doesn't come from a big company either but from a loosely coordinated group of volunteer programmers called the Apache Group The Internet itself and much of its core software was developed through a process of networked collaborationThe key to these stunning successes is a movement that as come to be called open source because it depends on the ability of programmers to freely share their program source code so that others can improve it In 1997 Eric S Raymond outlined the core principles of this movement in a manifesto called The Cathedral and the Bazaar which was publ. Raymond from the popclient program written by Carl Harris Its chief significance is perhaps that its author Eric S Raymond used it as a model to discuss is theories of open source software development in this book Some programmers including Dan Bernstein getmail creator Charles Cazabon and FreeBSD developer Terry Lambert ave criticized fetchmail s design its number of security L'art d'aimer holes and that it was prematurely put into maintenance mode In 2004 a new team of maintainers took over fetchmail development and laid out development plans that in some cases broke with design decisions that Eric Raymondad made in earlier versionsThe essays in the that Eric Raymond Collins French with Paul Noble - Learn French the Natural Way, Part 3 had made in earlier versionsThe essays in the describe open source software the process of systematicallyarnessing open develplment and decentralized peer review to lower costs and improve software uality contrasts two different free software development models The Cathedral model in which source code is available with each software release but code developed between releases is restricted to an exclusive group of software developers GNU Emacs and GCC are presented as examples The Bazaar model in which the code is developed over the Internet in view of the public Raymond credits Linus Torvalds leader of the Linux kernel project as the inventor of this process Raymond also provides anecdotal accounts of is own implementation of this model for the fetchmail projectThe essay s central thesis is Raymond s proposition that given enough eyeballs all bugs are shallow which e terms Linus law the widely available the source code is for public testing scrutiny and experimentation the rapidly all forms of bugs will be discovered In contrast Raymond claims that an inordinate amount of time and energy must be spent unting for bugs in the Cathedral model since the working version of the code is available only
to a few developersWhen O Reilly Media published the book in 1999a few developersWhen O Reilly Media published the book in 1999 achieved another distinction by being the first complete and commercially distributed book published under the Open Publication License Probably the earliest book on Open Source Written by one of the founders of the movement it gives us a great description of ow it came about and why it worked It s Apiculture et dprdateurs des produits de la ruche hugely motivatingHowever it was written aeons ago in terms of the word of software You won t find in itow the modern Open Source world works But it s still a great introduction to Open SourceI
wish it couldit could updated for 2016 This is a great book if you re an experienced Linux user who wasn t born during the time of it s active development or just want to reiterate it Great writing style witty remarks that keep the reader entertained I Questions that Islam can't answer - Volume one have learned a great deal from this book about open and closed source development models and the culture behind both Fab book. He party By August 1999 when the leading Linux distributor Red Hat Software made itsugely successful public stock offering it Deeds of John and Manuel Comnenus had become clear that open source was the next big thing in the computer industryThis revolutionary book starts out with A Brief History of Hackerdom theistorical roots of the open source movement and details the events that led to the recognition of the power of open source It contains the full text of The Cathedral the Bazaar updated and expanded for this book plus Mr Raymond's other key essays on the social and economic dynamics of open source software developmentOpen source is the competitive advantage in the Internet Age The Cathedral the Bazaar is a must for anyone who cares about the computer industry or the dynamics of the information economy Already billions of dollars ave been made and lost based on the ideas in this book Its conclusions will be studied debated and implemented for years to co. .
Ok was enough to prompt this reader to obtain a copy of Linux just in case This was the first book that wrote down the open source credo and that presented sound arguments for an open source business model The book presents the case that in software the main costs are development and debugging and as any author knows either in general or a software author you never get it right first time So the biggest cost is never releasing because you are worried it is not perfect By taking an open source approach you let the community do the debugging and finish the development They can customise it as they want and the community provides the support So the costs shift and development improves This book gives examples of the real impact of open source including the rapid growth of Linux and the dominance of Apache It shows ow closed source business can go open source to prevent their competitors monopolising a sector Netscape open sourcing MozillaThese are great examples but I was left wondering if the model still Kuli Kontrak held up Originally this was a set of regularly updated web essays but since the 2001 edition theyave been set in stone and so I wanted to know if the rules still old For
Example What Has Beenwhat as been impact of Google on open source and The Zukofsky Era how does Google fit into the open source model Social networking such as MySpace and Facebook is another case in pointFor me it is also not as easy to read as Iad Basic Anatomy and Physiology of the Human Body hoped The style lets it down and it is obvious it is written by an insider and needed some better editing to give it impact and less geekiness I am a geek myself but there are limits toow geeky readers want you to be as an author As advertised Great purchase Thanks While the content of this book I think is worthwhile reading my rating Soins naturels pour les cheveux has to take into the consideration the format as well as you re ultimately interested in what you re going to get when you buy this In particular I ve noticed some big problems1 While the content is in the right order the page ordering is messed up and not even in seuence2 The footnote links often lead to the wrong footnotes3 The bibliography and acknowledgements appear somewhere in the middle of the footnotesIope someone will bother updating this ebook because it would definitely be worth it The Cathedral and the Bazaar is a collection of essays originally meant for programmers and technical managers written by Eric S Raymond on programmers and technical managers written by Eric S Raymond on engineering methods based on Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Tome 44 : Mon papa n'est pas mon papa his observations of the Linux kernel development process andis experiences managing an open source project fetchmailI you like a deeper work on Linux development I can recommend the book Rebel Code by Glyn Moodyfetchmail is an open source software utility to retrieve e mail from a remote mail server It was developed by Eric Ished and freely redistributed over the InternetMr Raymond's thinking electrified the computer industry He argues that the development of the Linux operating system by a loose confederation of thousands of programmers without central project management or control turns on its ead
everything we thoughtwe thought knew about software project management Internet enabled collaboration and free information sharing not monopolistic control is the key to innovation and product ualityThis idea was interesting to than programmers and software project leaders It suggested a whole new way of doing business and the possibility of unprecedented shifts in the power structures of the computer industryThe rush to capitalize on the idea of open source started with Netscape's decision to release its flagship Netscape Navigator product under open source licensing terms in early 1998 Before long Fortune 500 companies like Intel IBM and Oracle were joining
