It seems fitting that the first blog entry at Free and Open Source Software Learning Centre (fosslc.org) should be about why we created fosslc.org.
Prior to creating Free and Open Source Learning Centre (fosslc.org), we created Open Source Bootcamp (osbootcamp). We created osbootcamp to provide skills development and outreach with open source. In particular, we wanted to focus on crucial skills such as working with code repositories, working with build engines like make, and open source development practices. As well, we wanted to help people understand the fundamental skills and etiquette they need in order to be able to get involved with Eclipse, OSGeo, Mozilla, Linux, and many other communities.
