Professors Open Source Summer Experience


There are more professors than ever hoping to teach the open source development process to their students, but it can be a challenging process. Professors have only a limited amount of time to learn about open source, and are often unsure about how to get started.

POSSE is designed for these professors. Sponsored by Red Hat, the POSSE program is a weeklong bootcamp that will immerse professors in open source projects. Participants will spend a week of intensive participation in selected open source projects, led by professors with experience in teaching open source development, in partnership with community members who have deep experience and insight.


Participants will arrive on Sunday, July 20th for a reception and introduction, and then will leave on Friday, July 24th, no doubt after many, many hours of hacking, thinking, arguing, learning, and teaching.
