Open Source & Education Working Together

502 views

Published on

Open source software is a relatively new development model that employs critical computer science skills like working in virtual teams, code reading and communication skills. Open source software projects get many of their new developers as students. While programs like the Google Summer of Code internships help funnel students to open source software projects, they also work with universities in a number of ways. Many professors are teaching their students open source software skills by teaching them to work on real projects. This requires collaboration between universities, professors and open source software projects. Come learn and discuss how open source software communities and educational communities are working together.
