Reflections on my time at the Open Source Lab
Guest post by Travis Whitehead
Despite my strong interest in free software, I never imagined myself in the position of getting paid to contribute to open source. At the OSL I learned valuable skills and gained work experience, but the biggest thing to me was that I was able to do work that was ethical and important. EECS News
