with open source the new normal, software development project leaders must adapt

Apple's decision in late 2015 to make its Swift programming language open source only cemented open source's status as the dominant software development method. From tech giants like Microsoft, IBM and Facebook to startups, open is the new normal. Seventy-eight percent of survey respondents said they now run all or part of their enterprise operations on an open-source software platform, according to the 2015 Future of Open Source Survey, published by Black Duck Software and North Bridge. That's nearly double the percentage from 2010. And almost half of respondents said they plan to release internal tools as open source, up 18 percent from 2014.
