21:08:45 <micadeyeye> Before we start, let me introduce you to the community.
21:08:54 <ckayome> ok
21:09:17 <micadeyeye> You are in a public chatroom, so to speak.
21:10:26 <micadeyeye> It's called the teachingopensource chatroom, and we have got other academics here.
21:10:57 <micadeyeye> There are from various institutions around the globe.

21:12:06 <micadeyeye> Okay, POSSE stands for Professors' Open Source Summer Experience.
21:14:03 <micadeyeye> It's a week-long workshop with the goal of teaching instructors (and few undergraduate/graduate students) tools/technologies, practices and methodologies found in Open Source Software development environments.
21:14:54 <micadeyeye> The idea is to teach you how you could teach your students Open Source Software (OSS) development.
21:15:35 <micadeyeye> You will get exposed to various tools used in the software industry.
21:20:04 <micadeyeye> on the phone with ckayome
