Walsh College is pleased to announce the formation of an Open Source Community that will focus its efforts on Internet technology.
The purpose of this community is to share and educate people within the group on all facets of web development tools and techniques, as well as initiate and publish open source web-based software projects.
The group is open to all Walsh Students and Alumni and is provided free of charge. This is a great opportunity to learn about developing web sites, configuring Linux servers, discussing design patterns, plus numerous other topics related to Internet technology. If you’re already an expert in one of these fields, it’s also a great platform to share your knowledge to help others learn.
To help facilitate the learning process, the Open Source Community will also undertake the development of software projects and websites. This provides numerous opportunities for people to get involved, even if you currently have no web-based technical abilities. There is a need for Project Managers, Technical Writers, Software Testers, Graphic Artists, and of course, Programmers.

Our next meeting is February 8th, Room 113, Troy campus, 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM.
This open to the public.
