Free as in Freedom: Contributing to Free/Open Source Software
Abstract: This session aims to equip participants with basic knowledge and skills needed to contribute improvements to the free/open source software (FOSS) they depend on. We will also discuss what FOSS is, how it is licensed, why it differs from proprietary software -- and how all this matters to conducting open scholarship.
