The Cathedral & the Bazaar - O'Reilly MediaRaymond on software engineering methods, based on his observations of the Linux kernel development process and his experiences managing an open source project, fetchmail. It examines the struggle between top-down and bottom-up design. The illustration on the cover of the book is a painting by Liubov Popova titled Composition with Figures and belongs to the collection of the State Tretyakov Gallery. The essay contrasts two different free software development models:. The essay's central thesis is Raymond's proposition that "given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow" which he terms Linus's law : the more widely available the source code is for public testing, scrutiny, and experimentation, the more rapidly all forms of bugs will be discovered. In contrast, Raymond claims that an inordinate amount of time and energy must be spent hunting for bugs in the Cathedral model, since the working version of the code is available only to a few developers. Raymond points to 19 "lessons" learned from various software development efforts, each describing attributes associated with good practice in open source software development: .

In Open Source as ;df Signalling Device - An Economic Analysis two economists mathematically model the process by which successful participation in an open-source project turns into a higher salary for programmers.

Revision 1. Minor updates to Fall on the time-sensitive material. I anatomize a successful open-source project, fetchmail, that was run as a deliberate test of the surprising theories about software engineering suggested by the history of Linux. I show that these models derive from opposing assumptions about the nature of the software-debugging task. Linux is subversive. Who would have thought even five years ago that a world-class operating system could coalesce as if by magic out of part-time hacking by several thousand developers scattered all over the planet, connected only by the tenuous strands of the Internet?
