One thought on “The Cathedral & the Bazaar: Musings on Linux and Open Source by an Accidental Revolutionary

  1. This book describes two modes or metaphors for software development the old Cathedral one, in which a few programmers, locked away from the world, slowly release iterations of their software to the world, a mode employed by the business world Then there s the new Bazaar , in which rapid development around a core team of developers is favoured, developers who are constantly in contact with users and co developers most of open source software development happens like this.It s an interesting time [...]


  2. As the Bible of the Open Source definition, this is a 5 star book It also happens to be one of the few ever written which attempts to explain what open source is and define its motives and mechanics.The issues I see with the book, which are being put forth from my own opinion 15 years after the books writing date and 12 years after this version s last update are these 1 It too lightly sidestepped the issues surrounding the introduction of a new software version number The statements and assumpti [...]


  3. I m intending to read this not because I have any knowledge of writing computer code or programming, and not because I have any particular interest in Linux except as a philosophy however, picture a protagonist that is a HACKER, and the circumscribed and circuitous and serpentine paths that he followed through the strange years of the MILLENNIUM, and one might start to see something of an interesting story beginning to gather itself Research for a possible PROJECT How could a novel be shaped lik [...]


  4. This is a famous paean to Open Source software, a bit dated now but still relevant It explains very clearly why the OS movement is so popular it also gives you an idea of why so many OS advocates are insufferable zealots Eric Raymond is an ideologue preaching his message, and while he makes good points usually , it does get very preachy at times and also ignores some of the economic realities Good reading if you re really into geek sociology and want to understand why Linux really was rather rev [...]


  5. This is a collection of essays which are all available online but nice to have in book form The common theme through all the essays is explaining, from an insider s point of view, who hackers are and why open source software seems to work so well Although ESR can sometimes brush off the commercial world and even the academic world a bit quickly, his essays feel right to me overall I think he is right about why open source software tends to be of such good quality frequent small releases, users e [...]


  6. Primeiramente publicado como um ensaio para o um congresso, a obra de Eric S Raymond acabou se tornado um livro interessante notar de como ele divide o desenvolvimento de tecnologias open source de duas categorias catedral, onde o c digo liberado publicamente a cada nova vers o, entretanto, o desenvolvimento est restrito a um pequeno grupo e o exemplo que Raymond cita o GCC GNU Compiler Collection o bazar o estilo onde cada novo lan amento o c digo disponibilizado, mas o desenvolvimento est aber [...]


  7. The Cathedral The Bazaar is a set of essays that documents a specific period in time, the rise of Linux in the 90 s, with a bit of history to explain UNIX and the state of computers up until that point It does a decent job of giving you an idea of what the open source community was like at the beginning until roughly 1998 The author, Eric S Raymond also known as esr , has been involved in some way or another with open source software since the movement began in the 80 s, and is also one of the o [...]


  8. How does a gift economy work EricRaymond has a collection of essays written over the 1990 s looking at the culture o software programming, in particular the subculture that develops and uses open source or free software In particular, his writings attempt to explain why does open source not fall into the trap of the free rider problem or the tragedy of the commons.The answer he comes up with are several One is the concept of scratch your own itch The idea that programmers find something that int [...]


  9. The author discusses the main points of difference between the two styles of software development i.e the one employed by corporate organisations microsoft and the likes called as the cathedral by the author and the one adopted by the open source community made popular by the success of linux kernel development called as the bazaar by the author He emphasizes on why the second model approach leads to a much better software product even though it seems counter intuitive All the points that are ar [...]


  10. It s kind of funny to read, because there are so many cornerstones of techno libertarian ideology presented in the essays At the time the essays were written it was probably all kind of new and exciting, but nowadays those positions are kinda hard to defend The parts about Linus Torvalds are gold, as it s argued that he s such a sweet and agreeable person And it s also pointed out how not attacking the authors and speaking softly are core skills when working in a Bazaar like environment I guess [...]


  11. I ve just started learning to use Unix systems and do some serious coding this year This book is a really interesting look into the past 20 years or so of computing and how things came to be the way they are ESR s writings collected here remind me just how crazy it is that Apache running on Linux is the most widely used server setup on the web, that Perl and gcc are ubiquitous, and that the browser with the second biggest market share is open source All in all, a very interesting and instructive [...]


  12. A fascinating look at the history of open source software and an interesting attempt to analyse its origins and imperatives The book is a bit dated in places and, with the benefit of hindsight, some of the predictions are a bit optimistic, but a riveting read nonetheless.


  13. A twenty year old technology book that has held up surprisingly well While Microsoft still dominates the desktop, Raymond s primary prediction that open source models will come to dominate the back end and server side parts of he internet have come spectacularly true, because of the various reasons he spells out While I d be interested in seeing what the thinks of the state of things in the intervening years with the rise of new tech giants Google, Facebook and a reborn Apple, social media, clou [...]


  14. This was a pretty interesting contemporary account of the history of the modern open source movement There s a lot about the current state of software both as a developer and as a user that s been dramatically affected by the people, events, and concepts Raymond recounts There were some interesting sociological anthropological observations, such as the parallels that the work open source developers provide for free has with gift culture societies In some parts, especially the drier academic Hom [...]


  15. There are three main parts to this book The Cathedral and the BazaarThe Magic CauldronHomesteading the NoosphereIn the Cathedral and the Bazaar, the author comments on how free open source software seems to run counter to Brooks Law, which basically explains why add adding developers to a project tends to make it later Basically, where N is the number of developers, productivity scales with N at best but communications overhead within the team scales with N squared Since developers spend part o [...]


  16. An unexpectedly well written collection of essays The hacker motif isn t as revolutionary as it was fifteen years ago Somehow, the movement became mainstream, and this book provides insight into why Understanding the culture is important now than ever While this essential reading is easy for a novice to digest, those lacking technical knowledge are advised to make liberal use of a search engine.


  17. A very interesting read, and one that I believe should be read by any computer scientist The first few chapters are very exciting and a great history lesson The book lulls towards the end however, especially when talking about the economics of the open source model, but this is still important It s especially interesting to compare the companies mentioned at the time of writing to how they are performing today.


  18. Pretty good perspective on how Linux came to be and how the open source process we take for granted nowadays was born Reading it now after almost 30 years since Linux itself started makes it even enjoyable as some of the predictions like Firefox have actually happened and many businesses came out of it, it s pretty impossible to imagine working in any kind of programming job without touching dozens of open source software built the same way Linux was built back then.



  19. Raymond is a pretty good and concise writer, his ideas are laid out very clearly in this book I can recommended this to anyone with a SF background.


  20. One of the most compelling books about computer science and technology I consider it a must read for any one interested in programming.



  21. Reviewed as part of my 100 books challenge jimmylongley blog books Run on Sentence SummaryEric Raymond, creator of SendMail and unofficial figurehead of the open source movement, explains the phenomenon in a series of classic essays.ImpressionsThis series of essays, chronicling and attempting to explain the open source revolution, is now a piece of history in its own right Raymond comes off as a bit weird and egotistical, but his ideas resonate.I highlighted half of the book, but there are two m [...]



  22. Hundreds, or perhaps thousands of years from now, if future historians were to search for a manifesto of the open source movement, the Cathedral and the Bazaar would probably be it Though somewhat dated now, particularly in the fast moving world of information technology, the book is made up of a series of essays by Eric S Raymond a hacker in the true sense of the word a technically adept and creative problem solver In a series of essays he outlines everything the open source movement stands for [...]


  23. The Cathedral the Bazaar is absolutely fundamental reading for any computer scientist that wishes to have an anywhere near reasonable discussion about the state of software development today It should really also be required reading in management, entrepreneurship and politics, as it outlines some interesting human motivations that, if embraced, could do great good for the world The open source model of software development should not be feared or abused as the immediate human nature responses a [...]


  24. As though a cross between a series of memoirs and a technquel manual for how to develop an open source project, this work is one of the defining pieces of literature in the world of the hacker culture In terms of what that means for this book, hacker refers not to those shady cybercriminals that silently lurk on the Internet trying to squeeze their way into any computer they can much like the one you, are now probably reading this on The original meaning for the word hacker in respects to the wo [...]


  25. This is fascinating stuff I read the whole thing online at catb.It has three essays 1 The Cathedral and the Bazaar, which is about how open source software produces a good product The cathedral represents traditional development, with one to three people working out every last detail of their masterpiece before releasing it, while the bazaar is a highly social open source model, where everybody reviews everything out in the open and information is traded freely He uses his own experience as an o [...]


  26. While I m happy to finally have gotten around to finishing this book, my intent was to read this set of older essays critically now that time has passed since the most exciting times of the Open Source revolution The Cathedral the Bazaar was a good essay, and Homesteading the Noosphere was, too, I guess.As for The Magic Cauldron, I started taking exception to some of the claims For example, No software customer will rationally choose to lock itself into a supplier controlled monopoly by becoming [...]


  27. A collection of five essays plus some forewords afterwords that focus on explaining open source, its importance in hacker culture, and its potential to be profitable in a business setting as well At this point it s nearly 20 years old, and a few things are either dated or widely understood, but there are still plenty of insights in here for both coders and non coders alike In particular, I think non technical readers who are interested in the business of tech can learn a lot, as the tendency to [...]
