In their seminal 2005 Harvard Business School paper "Does Code Architecture Mitigate Free Riding in the Open Source Development Model?", Carliss Baldwin and Kim Clark described the importance of early architecture decisions to a project's ability to attract and retain open source community developers. From the very beginning, the Ansible project was built with the findings of this paper in mind.

In this session, we will dig deeply into the history of the Ansible project codebase for specific examples of these architectural decisions, and we will examine how these decisions contributed to Ansible's ultimate success in building one of the most active developer communities in the open source world.
