POSSE Day 1

I am currently participating in POSSE Worcester State, taking place Worcester State College on June 6-11, 2010. This is a week-long bootcamp to prepare Computer Science faculty to participate in Free Open Source Software (FOSS) projects, and to be able to help their students participate as well.

My own goal for this workshop is to prepare for my section of CS 401 Object-Oriented Software Development in Fall 2010. I would like to have my students participate in a existing FOSS project as a way of learning to participate in a large software project with a large codebase and a large number of participants. However, I haven’t done this yet myself, so I am participating this week to learn how it all works.
