This past year, I enrolled as a student at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, NY. For me, this is quite a distance from my hometown just outside of Atlanta, GA. Part of the motivation that led me to choose RIT as my university of choice was its participation in Free and Open Source Software education and communities. RIT is one of the few schools in the United States to offer a minor in Free and Open Source Software.
As part of my time here at RIT, I plan to take on the minor. This semester marks the first milestone of this specific track for me. I am taking the Humanitarian Free and Open Source Software (HFOSS) course, and the first assignment for our class was writing a blog post about getting introduced into the class.
