Please join Women in Engineering for this month's book, Working in Public: The Making and Maintenance of Open Source Software.

In Working in Public, Nadia Eghbal takes an inside look at modern open source software development, its evolution over the last two decades, and its ramifications for an internet reorienting itself around individual creators. Eghbal, who interviewed hundreds of developers while working to improve their experience at GitHub, argues that modern open source offers us a model through which to understand the challenges faced by online creators. She examines the trajectory of open source projects, including:
-- the platform of GitHub, for hosting and development;
-- the structures, roles, incentives, and relationships involved;
-- the often-overlooked maintenance required of its creators;
-- and the costs of production that endure through an application's lifetime. ~ Amazon Books


"Nadia writes from a unique perspective at the intersection of open source, economics, and poetry. This is the definitive book on the dynamics of online creative communities." ~ Nat Friedman, CEO of GitHub
