About the FOSS category

Free Open Source Software, commonly abbreviated as FOSS, is one of the cornerstones of today’s software development processes. Everything from Linux, Git, Mozilla, Android to Arduino and Raspberry Pi are the result of communities coming together and creating amazing products. A track record of contributing and creating good open source projects is always a good thing to have on a student resume.

  • This topic is to discuss about Open Source competitions such as the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) and Kharagpur Winter of Code (KWoC). All deadlines and details related to these competitions will be posted here.

  • Members can also post to ask help for independent projects that they are working on.
