By Federico Musto on ParisTech Review

Arduino est une plateforme et un fournisseur de cartes de prototypage électronique pour les imprimantes 3D, développées en open source. Dès le départ, la firme a été étroitement liée avec une vaste communauté d'utilisateurs et un écosystème de développeurs, qui ont fait d’elle le leader mondial dans son domaine. Son secret? Un management très différent.
Open community and collective intelligence have become significant phenomena in all fields where organizations and institutions used to play a leading role. In the business field, where socialstructing has manifested its power the most, we‘ve witnessed the emergence and evolution of Linux, Android, and now the open-source hardware driven by the grand IoT revolution. As an open-source electronic prototyping platform and kit board provider, Arduino has from the very beginning tied itself closely with an expansive user community and developer ecosystem, and has been widely accepted as the global leader in this area.
