Open Source Summer School


The current curriculum is based on the highly successful Community Development Lab developed by ROSEdu during the last years. This activitye aims to help enthusiast undergraduate students at Politehnica University of Bucharest to make their first contributions within an open source project and to get a feeling of what real world software development actually means. The CDL curriculum is enriched for an extensive duration provided by the summer school, but still keeping the spirit of providing technical talks, hackathon sessions and invited talks.

Each day will be split among two major activities: technical talks or seminars and hackathon sessions. The hackathon sessions will involve participants and mentors alike working towards a selected open source project. Projects will be selected at the beginning of the summer school.

The technical seminars will be presentations of tools and technologies coupled with practical activities where participants will get a grip of how and when should they be using them. Eack seminar will be a 1 hour session covering the topics below:

Invited Speakers

Apart from the technical seminars, we will have invited speakers, helding either technical talks regarding technologies they have experience with, or personal development talks on topics such as creativity, involvement, building a career, working in teams, taking part in communities. These talks have been held in high regard during the Community Development Lab and we welcome them at the summer school.
