Helping to create the Dojo Toolkit was our first foray into applying our knowledge and expertise into solving early problems of the Enterprise and what would become a long history of establishing, maintaining and validating the usefulness, efficiency and necessity of open source software.
As early contributors to the Dojo Toolkit, we led the charge on understanding and addressing the constraints of complex web and enterprise applications. From internationalization and accessibility to data grids and charts to performance and security, our shared priority was building a robust foundation to meet the needs of the enterprise at every turn and ensuring our customers were adhering to best practices and standards of the day.
Efficiencies of Scale
The broad acceptance of open source software demonstrated that distributed teams could effectively and efficiently collaborate across space and time, laying waste to the idea that developers needed to be side-by-side in cubicles to complete projects. From this sprouted the idea of shared repositories, codebases and methodologies across multiple, internal teams. Our work continues with our customers today in helping large companies InnerSource their code and instill the open source methodologies that enable effective and engaged teams.
