Open source in education


Distinguish yourself from many other computer science students with knowledge and experience that is in demand.

How it helps

The open source way can distinguish you from other computer science students

  • Demonstrate the way you work

    Work collaboratively on teams with people all over the world to solve actual problems.

  • Increase your visibility

    Build a codebase that you can show to potential employers—while working with people who could become those employers.

  • Increase your value

    Be more in demand and potentially command a higher salary.

  • Give back

    Work on humanitarian projects that help solve problems—like directing disaster relief efforts or allowing mobility-limited individuals to control a computer via eye movements—and develop skills valuable in many situations.
