Producing Open Source Software is truly the first e-book of its type: it's a handbook that clearly explains almost every associated concept, technology and terminology commonly communicated by free software developers. And all this without the assumption that the reader has any in-depth familiarity, although it is suggested readers do have some familiarity with general, established software concepts.
This previously under documented and sparsely commented information is brought together in a single digital manual. And, practising what is preached, the book itself is open source and in this case distributed by obooko under a Creative Commons license (which you will find at the end of the book.)
This e-book may also serve well as an introduction for journalists, corporate managers and personnel; in fact and anyone else who is engaged with and interacts with the world of free software. Professionals and specialist experts by comparison will find the book also contains useful information for working with the project management of free software development. Producing OSS offers not only advice to those commencing new projects, but an opportunity for managers of existing open source projects to compare lessons learned with the best practices laid out in the book.
