Happy FOSS

Opensource, Technology, Programming & Computer Science

Open source in Engineering Curriculum

Take GNU/Linux as your case study and use FOSS in subjects that you will encounter

for example

1.System Software
2.Data Structures
3.OOPS
4.Operating Systems
5.Computer Networks
6. Web Technology
7.Cryptography & Network Security
8.Embedded Systems

One can do his/her assignments, projects, research using Open Source Software!

When you can come to position of contributing to open source projects,
please do 🙂 I guess it takes final year for that, but it depends on the individual.

Like a biology student disects rabit to learn biological science, Computer Science student has to essentially use Open Source tools and software to understand Computer Science.
Disect the code 😉

Join mailing lists of your favorite open software to collaborate with the community.

  1. Open source provides a lot of learning opportunities. But the universities and the colleges are not helping enough. In fact they are hurting the students by their old and outdated rules. Most colleges wont accept study projects.

  2. yes ,Open source provides a lot of learning opportunities. But the universities and the colleges are not helping enough. In fact they are hurting the students by their old and outdated rules. Most colleges wont accept study projects.I agree with what Kenney said.Most students fear of such projects during initial stages & no help can be provided from colleges .
