<Identify meeting times. Find out HFOSS project meeting times.>

Please answer each of the following questions as it relates to your activity.

  1. Identify the course(s) the activity would be appropriate for.
          Technology and Society intro HFOSS exposure
          Directed studies course for 4th year students, 13 weeks course in which the students spend 8-10 hrs per week
          CS2 - HFOSS as examples. students could pull out design or model control flow
          Intro to software engineering. course project could include doing requirements, design, development, testing for a new feature or bug fix

Lynn: Start with an independent project Summer 2015. Ask Linux user's group if they want to. Then, try to incorporate in an upper level course (maybe Object Oriented Programming?)

Southwest Baptist: do as a capstone. Doing it now. rescope as necessary. Introduce in bits and pieces through the curriculum. In the capstone, we identify an industry sponsor. We may have somebody to be a sponsor going forward for HFOSS.

Sean: uses githubs. 4 course into programming sequence. IT students, not coding.

Rob: use github, local repository in CS1.

Swap: I use opendata. 50 people, several teams. They use github, Ruby on Rails, etc. Taught basics in two 1 hour recitations. rspec. Using FOSS tools. and other data websites. Use the data in an interesting way.
