Lessons Learnt and Best Practices for US Military Software – 2011

This was a lessons learnt and a guide to help US government personnel and contractors implement open technology development (OTD) for software within government projects, particularly in defence.

This document marks a parting between South Africa and many other governments around the world.

The UK government is another good example of this as well as the EU.
