As part of a long-term strategy and investment, Oregon State University (OSU) has helped power the open source ecosystem for over ten years through the Open Source Lab (OSL). In addition to hosting FOSS projects, the lab provides hands-on learning opportunities for students, and has over the years become an important pipeline for talent, with our alumni including the founders of CoreOS.

While we’ve been able to create an amazing program at OSU, there are still many challenges and hurdles that we and other academics are working on solving. Incorporating FOSS into formal academic programs is challenging. This presentation will discuss some of these challenges, best practices developed at OSU and elsewhere, and how academia and the FOSS community can work together to ensure the next generation of students gain the skills needed to keep the open source community growing.
