Openhatch at Mason

October 24th, 2015

9:30am-7:00pm

Planetary Hall 129

Doors Open at 9:00am


Description

Learn the tools and culture of open source development, meet great people, and help impact real projects during this all-day immersion workshop. No experience is needed for participation in this event: students of all levels of technical skill and from all majors are welcomed. (Not all contributions come in the form of code. It can be artwork, documenation and copy, translations, and more!) And yes, all meals and snacks are provided.

Openhatch at Mason (2015) is jointly organized by Mason student organizations Student-Run Computing and Technology and Mason Linux Users Group with the nonprofit Openhatch through their Open Source Comes to Campus initiative.

We're fresh off holding a similar, tremendously successful Openhatch partnership event in 2014. The pictures on this page are from that workshop.

Participants will work in small groups with both outside open source professionals and trained student mentors to cover the practical skills needed to contribute to open source projects. They'll also hear talks by Mason faculty on open source history, and its use in academia as well as a discussion by a panel of open source contributors in industry.

Making open source more welcoming to newcomers and more diverse are mutually reinforcing goals, and we're committed to building as broad a group of contributors and greater community as we can. We hope you'll join us encouraging participation by women, minorities, and other members of groups generally underrepresented in tech.
