Ramakrishna Vaddempudi - Open Source Programming
Ramakrishna Vaddempudi is a professional software developer and tester who has been working in the field for many years now, and continues to demonstrate a level of aptitude that most do not, especially for the young age of twenty seven. Vaddempudi has continued over the course of his career to impress his peers and superiors with not only his work ethic and kind nature, but his philosophy on the future of programming, and the discipline in general. When asked what the future holds for the world of software development, many are surprised by Vaddempudi's answer, as he is someone who relies solely on the income generated by his profession to survive. People are surprised by his answer because it is one that does not involve and profit, especially for him. Vaddempudi says that in the perfect future, all programs and software in both the completed and developmental stage will be available in open source. When people give him a strange look and say, but won't that mean that there will be no money generated? Vaddempudi only smiles back and explains the benefits of keeping programming open source. Vaddempudi says that if you put the concern for profits aside, the best programs are ones that can be looked at and examined by the public during development, so that it can mold and adapt to the people's needs. Vaddempudi says that the point of making it free is so that there is more access to it, therefore more chance for improvement. Vaddempudi says that this is the future of software development because it will allow innovations that people can scarcely imagine.
Ramakrishna Vaddempudi believes that profits do not need to be generated by open source programming in the future, and that eventually society will operate altruistically, acting as a support system for each other, which will encourage progress.
