No Matter Your Thoughts on Open Source, Read This


Open Source Director at Facebook, James Pearce, Talked to Forbes

"When we’re deciding whether to open source something in the first place, that’s one of our key criteria: to make sure that the team that is launching it is not going to just throw it over the wall and forget about it but will continue to interact with the community and continue to support the technologies once they launch. One of the arguably unique aspects of our open source program is that we only open source the projects that we’re using in production... If you look at some large companies and the projects they have on (code repository] GitHub, you’ll get hackathon projects and engineers doing this or that on their own time. We’re very happy for people to do hackathon projects, but our main open source portfolio is literally the Facebook stack [software platform]." —James Pearch
