====Open Source Comes to Campus (OSCTC) 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.====
   
  +
====Want to see what we teach? Take a look at our [[Open_Source_Comes_to_Campus/Curriculum | curriculum]].====
=== Criteria for Selecting Locations ===
 
   
  +
====Want to run your own event? Check out [http://campus.openhatch.org/ the main website] or [http://osctc-planning.github.io/ take a look at our planning process].====
* 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?
 
   
  +
====The [[Open Source Comes to Campus/Logistics | logistics page]] talks about some of the nitty-gritty, like how to find a space or advice for ordering food.====
== Staff date (un)availability ==

If you spot any problems with any part of OSCTC, or have any suggestions for how to improve it, you can leave an issue in our [https://github.com/openhatch/open-source-comes-to-campus/issues issue tracker] or just tell us via [http://openhatch.readthedocs.org/en/latest/community/contact.html IRC or email].
[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.

Open Source Comes to Campus (OSCTC) 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.

Want to see what we teach? Take a look at our curriculum.

Want to run your own event? Check out the main website or take a look at our planning process.

The logistics page talks about some of the nitty-gritty, like how to find a space or advice for ordering food.

If you spot any problems with any part of OSCTC, or have any suggestions for how to improve it, you can leave an issue in our issue tracker or just tell us via IRC or email.
