LibreCorps: Humanitarian Open Source Student Work Writ Large

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

LibreCorps is an initiative that places RIT students into paid Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) internships at Humanitarian organizations. Attendees will learn how RIT's FOSS efforts grew from a single course to a full academic minor and series of experiential education programs. We’ll outline our long-term goals for LibreCorps to become a year-round, student-based FOSS consultancy program, and talk about why humanitarian work has become a driver for today's college students. We’ll offer tips for engaging students in FOSS developer communities and for growing FOSS education within your own organization.
