Open Source Comes to Campus is a workshop designed to teach students how to get involved in open source software. We have a [http://campus.openhatch.org/ website] and a [https://github.com/openhatch/open-source-comes-to-campus github repository] for materials.

=== Criteria for Selecting Locations ===
 
 
* How many attendees are we likely to get? As a general heuristic, if the CS program is more than 100 people, we're likely to get enough people for a good event.
 
* Is there a good host organization - an ACM, Women in CS group - that can follow up on the workshop with project nights or other events to keep people involved?
 
* Is it easy for us to get to? Can we get funding to pay for our travel?
 
* Is there a pool of local volunteers - for instance, from local user groups, or from the CS program - that can help mentor at the event?
 
 
== Staff date (un)availability ==
 
 
[https://www.google.com/calendar/embed?src=915aps75rptacp5lltdutstah0%40group.calendar.google.com&ctz=America/New_York Our Google calendar] should have the most up to date schedule.

Revision as of 21:25, 5 December 2013

Open Source Comes to Campus is a workshop designed to teach students how to get involved in open source software. We have a website and a github repository for materials.
