Contributing to Free/Libre and Open Source Software


About This Course

Free/Libre and Open Source Software (or ”FLOSS") is built on the principles of freedom, collaboration, and community. This course is a collection of the skills and expertise contributors to this course have acquired over years of working on FLOSS projects. We want to share this experience with you to give you a headstart on your journey into the world of open source.

This is paragraph 2 of the long course description. Add more paragraphs as needed. Make sure to enclose them in paragraph tags.

What you'll learn

By the end of this 7-module free course, you will not only be able to contribute confidently to FLOSS projects, but will also have a much deeper understanding of the importance of the “open source” way of working.


This course is primarily aimed at people with some programming experience, but no prior engagement with the free software or open source community. Parts of it will suppose some familiarity with computer engineering or coding skills (not focusing on any language in particular) — but it could be followed by anyone who wants to know about FLOSS.
