TransferSummit - Open innovation at Apache: "No Jerks Allowed!"

Filed under
Software

Over the past decade, The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) has been supporting the Apache community’s development of some of the most ubiquitous products in Open Source, benefiting billions of users worldwide. Its collaborative, consensus-based development process, affectionately dubbed "The Apache Way", is one of its secrets to creating dozens of high quality, industry-leading software products that all began with a single project.

That first project also happens to be the ASF's most popular; the Apache HTTP Server continues to dominate the Web server market, powering more than 70% of all web sites, roughly 112 million web sites worldwide. Not bad for an all-volunteer group with a membership of 300 individuals and nearly 2,300 code contributors from across six continents.

To date, half of the top ten downloaded Open Source products are Apache projects, most enterprise Java solutions are developed using Apache build tools, and more than a dozen Apache technologies form the foundation of today’s Cloud computing. An array of Apache solutions power mission-critical applications in financial services, aerospace, publishing, government, healthcare, research, education, infrastructure, and more.

We are often asked, with no technical directive (formal or otherwise), virtually no hierarchy, and hundreds of individual collaborators, how does the cat herding happen? How do we actually get anything done?
