openFrameworks development is collaborative. It thrives on the contributions of many people, who engage in frequent discussion on the forums, IRC, and the of-dev mailing list.

We use git, a distributed versioning system, which means also that people can branch, experiment, and make suggestions. If you look at the network diagram on GitHub, it's looks like some alien diagram, full of weaving branches, code pulling apart and coming together. There's a huge community, all over the world, working on the core code: fixing bugs, submitting pull requests, and shaping the tool the way they want to see it.

contributors

openFrameworks is actively developed by Zach Lieberman, Theodore Watson, and Arturo Castro ("the core"), with help from the OF community. openFrameworks is indebted to two significant precursors: the Processing development environment, created by Casey Reas, Ben Fry and the Processing community; and the ACU Toolkit, a privately distributed C++ library developed by Ben Fry and others in the MIT Media Lab's Aesthetics and Computation Group.
