Speaker Title
DJ Byrne, JPL Open Source Software and its Role in Space Exploration
Open Source developers and NASA have a lot in common. Both are dedicated to expanding the pool of information floating freely through society. Both are focussed on the cutting edge, creating tools and capabilities which did not previously exist. I like to think that the community's donations of code are reciprocated with knowledge about weather systems, climate, and basic science. Open source software explores our solar system and observes the Universe. For example, software on and around Mars today was built with gcc out of a CVS repository stored in AFS, using kerberos authentication. Next-generation rovers are being tested between JPL and Ames sharing test images in AFS. And ground flight operations relies heavily on open source.
