THE UK MINISTRY OF DEFENCE (MoD) has revealed that it has put a piece of code into the open source community for the first time.

A commercial subsidiary of the MoD known as the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) has posted a program that has been used internally at the MoD to collate ideas and exploit "the creative power of a workforce".

Originally designed as a low-cost prototype, the open source code has been posted to Github, joining code from other ministries including the Cabinet Office and the Department for Energy and Climate Change, both of which already contribute projects.
