IGM will again be running the course "Humanitarian Free and Open Source Software Development" this Spring. It'll be taught this year by established Hacker Justin Sherrill (http://www.shiningsilence.com/dbsdlog/author/admin). This course provides the novices an opportunity to get started in Open Source, and the pros the flexibility to get deeper into the field.

Our Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship Team will be telepresenting for the RIT SURF Symposium their work on social coding and gamification of FOSS project contributions from Red Hat HQ in Westford, MA! Our on-site Red Hat co-ops will also be presenting their work on Open Badges and Kernel tuning during the symposium during that same block.
We are truly excited to share our progress with fellow researchers at RIT and Red Hat, and to bring our team to Boston. This is going to be a good one folks :)
