Seminar "Open Source Software Engineering"

This is the homepage of the Seminar "Open Source Software Engineering", which was taught in summer term 2006 at Free University Berlin.

This seminar has been taught before during winter term 2004/2005 and winter term 2005/2006. Its homepages can be found at SeminarOpenSource2004 and SeminarOpenSource2005.


This seminar deals with topics concerning the development of software following the Open Source development model. The main focus is on the social roles and activities within the community, but since there is only limited material available we also have to focus on other areas of active research.

Organisatorisches (of local interest, therefore in German)
