About the course

The idea of collaboration drives a large part of today’s global technology. Open source helps you witness innovation by collaboration-be part of it and contribute to it.

Unlike its origins in “free and open” source code, today, open source incorporates various other paradigms, including advocacy, design, data, and communities.

This course is designed to give a holistic idea of open-source principles while offering enough exposure to the practical methodology. 

By the end of this course, you will be able to contribute to open-source, participate in open-source communities, host your open-source projects, and develop an understanding of the ecosystem and be a part of it. 

As we learn about open source during the course, we will talk about origins, open source licenses, communities, collaboration & participation, and much more.

  • Open source origin.
  • Why do we need to learn about open source?
  • Open source Participation and Contribution.
  • Open Source Projects.
  • Starting an Open source project.
  • Building a Community.
