"Muons and mesons and quarks—oh my! Never fear, Dorothy, the Large Hadron Collider and open-source software willsave the day.

What is at the heart of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments? It should not surprise you that open-source software is one of the things that powers the most complex scientific human endeavor ever attempted. I hope to give you a glimpse into how scientific computing embraces open-source software and the open-source philosophy in one of the LHC experiments.

Open Source and the LHC. Two of the greatest things to happen in the last 100 years.
