We are working to build a community of developers to help create an open, extendable software base for NDS services and tools. We are cultivating that community through several channels of effort:
- We sponsor pilot projects focused on particular problems or capabilities required by the NDS. Some of these take advantage of NDS Labs, a developer's workbench environment for building NDS capabilities
- We sponsor hackathons to inspire innovative solutions and encourage the creation of "glue" that can connect different technologies together.
Software that comes out of these projects are intended to be open. To observe their progress and make your contributions, check out the NDS software projects at GitHub and Bitbucket .
