Are you teaching a course in open source software development? Are you in an Open Source community or business that is willing to support the teaching of community open source development practices? Join the Roll Call!


There are more and more professors teaching open source every day.

There are also more and more professors who would like to teach open source, but don't have the experience, the know-how, or the resources to do so. Not only that, but they don't have any models to follow.

Our simple goal here is to collect a directory of professors and others who are successfully teaching the practice of open source software development to their students. It's a small but vitally important first step.

To join the roll call, please create an account, edit the wiki, and add your name, your institution, your contact information, and whatever information you believe to be relevant about your work.

P.S. If you're wondering whether you belong on this list, you almost certainly do.  :)
