From Humanitarian-FOSS Project Development Site

This page is intended to help instructors take that first step towards involving students in an HFOSS project.

Getting Involved in the Community

Below are some tips for getting both students and instructors involved in the development community of an HFOSS project:

  • Sign up for the developers mailing list
  • Get on the IRC band for the project
  • Introduce students to people who are willing and able to answer student questions
  • Have student blog about his work so that the HFOSS community can be made aware of the student's work
