Kitware Authors Contribute to Architecture of Open Source Text

June 28, 2011

Earlier this month, “The Architecture of Open Source Applications” was published. Edited by Amy Brown and Greg Wilson, the book highlights 25 open-source applications, with the guest authors contributing the chapters. Each chapter covers a different open-source application and discusses the structure and reasoning behind them. Two chapters were written by Kitware team members; Berk Geveci and Will Schroeder contributed a chapter on VTK and Bill Hoffman and Ken Martin contributed a chapter on CMake.

The book is being sold on Lulu and Amazon, and all proceeds are being donated to Amnesty International. Also released under a Creative Commons License, the book can be read online for free. Since its release, the book has sold more than 375 hard copies and 240 PDF copies.
