Software development and deployment has evolved tremendously over the
last two decades. Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) is going
mainstream. The industry is asking for an increasing number of
well-trained professionals that are able to install, exploit,
maintain, develop and create sophisticated software artifacts, in
particular coming from the FOSS world, and that furthermore bring in
knowledge about legal, economic and management issues.

Academia is called to contribute now to satisfy this demand by
developing a curriculum specifically taking into account the changes
that FOSS has brought to the software ecosystem, and by incorporating
FOSS into the early stages of the traditional IT curriculum.

This special track at OWF will present some of the currently existing
FOSS-oriented diplomas from all over the world. The goal is to
consolidate and structure our experiences and ideas into a common set
of curriculum guidelines, and to issue recommendations for its
