Open Source Software Isn’t Just Code. It’s Your Resume

Sitaram has long encouraged his students to contribute to open source projects, and now he’s taking things a step further, teaming up with OpenStack India — a local developer group — to run seminars where students learn the open source way by jumping headfirst into OpenStack. The aim is to educate them, but also make them more attractive to employers. If you’re looking for a job in the tech world, many tech companies look at your open source work as much as your resume, and Sitaram wants to give his students the early edge.
