12 Great Quotes from “The Cathedral and the Bazaar”

OSS

The Cathedral and the Bazaar, a famous essay by Eric S. Raymond, has been a great inspiration by many open source software developers. I've read the book about 2 years ago, and liked it a lot that I bookmarked some of the pages that contained some wonderful words of wisdom.

I’m going to share to you a few highly inspiring quotes that I took from The Cathedral and the Bazaar:

1. “I then make a sustained argument from the Linux experience for the proposition that "Given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow"

2. “Good programmers know what to write. Great ones know what to rewrite (and reuse).”

3. “Release early. Release often. And listen to your customers.”
