Hunter College Students Learning About Open Source

In the fall 2016 semester, in the Computer Science Department at Hunter College, computer science majors and a few non-majors were exposed to the concept of open source software, open data, and HFOSS. To the best of my knowledge (and I have been teaching there since 1986)  this has not been done before. My “CS3” class this semester is programming using open data from the NYC Trees Census of 2015, and soon they will get an assignment sending them to look at an HFOSS project.  I hope that some of them are as excited about exploring this new approach to their education as I am.
