From Teaching Open Source
At OSCON 2008, a group of people met to discuss teaching open source. The original TeachingOpenSource wiki page contained notes from this discussion and is archived here as it stood on March 1, 2009. Much of the material from this page has been copied to other pages in this wiki.
Teaching Open Source
This wiki is for a link farm of (and discussion of) resources about teaching open source practices.
- 100 Free Open Courseware Courses About Open Source (quite a resource, actually!)
- Building Communities (at OSS Watch)
- Building a community around your open source project (at RedHat Magazine)
- Free Software Project Management HOWTO
- Contributing to Open Source Projects HOWTO
- Producing Open Source Software A book about running open source projects.
- Open Source Teaching I don't think this is related to what we're doing, but we should be prepared for occasional identity collisions.
- Open Source Teaching (Wikipedia article) This article, on the other hand, while clearly inspired by opensourceteaching.org, does contain some well-presented information about standard open source practices.
- Ten golden rules for starting with open source, by Tobias Schlitt
- Ten golden rules for running an open source project, by Greg Beaver

Luis Suarez-Potts says: "FLOSS Universities List / Google Group". (Does that mean he's started one, or wants to start one? Don't know.)
