Q. What does open source signify for the Thoughtworks team?

A. At Thoughtworks, the concept of open source goes beyond just a development model or a type of software. It is deeply ingrained in our culture and philosophy. We view it as a challenge to break away from traditional solutions and foster a transparent, community-driven process for developing technology.

Thoughtworks has actively embraced open source development; the goal is for the open source project to be supported by the wider community. We have achieved this by creating various open source tools, and upskilling individuals.
