2011 NASA Open Source Summit - Patrick Hogan

  1. Patrick Hogan Project Manager World Wind
  2.  
  3. <ul><li>Find Actionable Solutions to NASA ’ s open source challenges </li></ul><ul><li>Share Lessons Learned building and leveraging open source communities </li></ul><ul><li>Propose Modifications that make it easier for NASA to develop, release, and use open source software </li></ul>
  4. <ul><li>Actionable Solutions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Need an idea good enough to spark a community and an architect great enough to design for the unknown </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Lessons Learned </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The idea and platform must inspire a community: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Testing, fast feedback, fixes, fresh ideas, enhancements … </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Extend the value of good (or bad) architecture </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Viral growth (or not) depends on code value to users </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Proposed Modifications </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Attractive license is essential </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Unencumbered usage, cost, IP, liability and attribution </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  5. <ul><li>Increased quality but beware chaotic community and patchwork code! </li></ul><ul><li>Reduced development costs but far from free! </li></ul><ul><li>Immediate development cycles but anytime builds can lead to version mush! </li></ul><ul><li>Catalyzes public-private collaboration </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Commercialization of NASA technology needs an attractive license! “Use a common, well-known OSS license , LGPL, MIT, BSD-new, Apache 2.0 – don’ t write your own license!” </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>[ MITRE 2003: Use of Fee and Open-Source Software in DoD ] </li></ul></ul></ul>
  6. <ul><li>Provide tools others will find easy to use for their purposes: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Simplify your app to essential modules/libraries that can service far more specialized functionality, i.e., a suite of development tools, i.e., an SDK </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Make it API-centric, cross-platform and based on open standards </li></ul>
  7. <ul><li>World Wind Technology </li></ul><ul><li>Spatial Data Infrastructure </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>“ World Wind is the most widely used software ever produced by NASA” </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>[Dr. Patrick Moran, NASA Advanced Supercomputing, Ames Research Center] </li></ul></ul></ul>
  8. <ul><li>API-centric, cross-platform and based on open standards </li></ul><ul><li>World Wind is not an app but a plug-in, if you need a 3D world, just plug it in </li></ul><ul><li>World Wind facilitates innovation, by serving others purposes open and unencumbered </li></ul>
  9. <ul><li>Gives any application the means to visualize and manage real world spatial data and behaviors </li></ul>Real world context Dynamic 4D Interactive analysis
