At ThoughtWorks, our technical communities provide an environment supportive of developers working on open source initiatives. Our legal department assists projects by helping them with licensing and intellectual property issues. Wherever possible, we promote the use of open source software on development projects.

OpenStack is a set of software tools for building and managing cloud computing platforms for public and private clouds. Backed by some of the biggest companies in software development and hosting, as well as thousands of individual community members, many think that OpenStack is the future of cloud computing. OpenStack is managed by the OpenStack Foundation, a non-profit which oversees both development and community-building around the project.
From our experience innovative approaches and pragmatic solutions for a particular technical problem are often created in the context of a larger business-driven development effort by practitioners in the field. When released as open source software these solutions get generalised and become part of the toolchest for the entire community.
We’re always interested in having people join us in the movement to promote and distribute free software. We regularly sponsor meetings by different groups in the community and are happy to have people come along.
