Yesterday afternoon I received a certificate of appreciation from the Western Oregon University (WOU) Computer Science Department for my work from 2012 through 2013 mentoring WOU students on contributing to the Ubuntu Community.
As you can imagine receiving this put a smile on my yesterday afternoon. It is very rewarding to know that there are students who I mentored who are still contributing to Ubuntu and may make a career out of Free and Open Source Software.
I would like to plug Teaching Open Source a neutral collaboration point for those teaching or advocating free and open source software in academic settings. Additionally, Mozilla is also doing a lot of great stuff to get students involved in open web and free and open source software.
Thanks to everyone who helped make the mentorship project possible!
