CSCI 4470 - Open Source Software


Open source communities are proven development engines for creating large diverse user-focused software; however, these communities are not easily supported by traditional models of software development. Expected behaviors, tools, and licensing are uniquely adapted to the needs of an often volunteer workforce, distributed and asynchronous development, and meritocracy. In this course, students use and develop open source software, create open source repositories, and participate in open source communities.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisites: CSCI 2300 and CSCI 2600.

When Offered: Spring and summer terms annually.



Credit Hours: 4
