ABOUT THIS LEARNING PATH
This seven-module course series builds on the collective experience of several previous open source best practises training courses, while also introducing new and revised material to clarify all of the essential elements of working successfully with open source in your organisation. The courses are self-paced and built to be high-level but detailed enough to get novice open source professionals up and running quickly.
The goal of this course series is to help administrators, managers, and software developers identify and express the fundamental principles for implementing successful open source practises in their organisations. It’s also useful for a leadership audience responsible for establishing successful open source software management in their enterprise. Students should provide a clear knowledge of software creation and industry concepts before enrolling.
You should be able to develop successful processes and methods for developing new open source projects from scratch, or for open sourcing previously closed source projects within an organisation, after completing this course sequence.
