Seminar "Open Source Software Engineering" 2008


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)
