In addition to providing large-scale, highly available computational resources, clouds also enable a new methodology for software development via crowdsourcing, in which crowd participants either collaborate or compete to contribute software. Using a crowd to develop software is predicted to take its place alongside established methodologies, such as agile, scrum, pair programming, service-oriented computing, and the traditional waterfall.
