    Website: TeachingOpenSource.ORG

    Open Source is becoming a dominant development model in the software industry. The next generation of software developers, computer scientists, system administrators, analysts, and build engineers need to understand Open Source and must be able to work efficiently within Open Source communities.

    This is a neutral collaboration point for professors, institutions, communities, and companies to come together and make the teaching of Open Source a global success.
    TeachingOpenSource.org was set up in March 2009 to serve as a neutral collaboration point for everyone involved in Teaching Open Source...

    I'm not really sure that Open Source is really a software development model as such, just something that comes naturally to software developers working within organisations who's main focus is not IT and who need to collaborate with other people in their field. Education is an excellent example - the main focus of any school should be teaching children things, any software development time needs to be spent creating solutions and features that help that, and less messing around with licensing concerns (added complexity as well as added cost) always helps.

    Can you summarise what TeachingOpenSource is hoping to get accross to learning software developers? Maybe some kind of example of how a developer can make money / a living out of developing open source software? Are they implying / advocating that different toolsets be used in the development of open source software?
