The information below is part of a larger conversation about Open Source Program (or Project) Offices (OSPOs)in academic (university) settings.
Ways to Contribute
[VERSO] has compiled a list of ways to contribute to open source, especially if you are not a coder.
What other universities/companies/municipalities have OSPOs?
- OSPO++’s [list of member organizations(https://ospoplusplus.org/about/members/)]
- The interactive OSPO Landscape Map is a map of open source program offices, supporters, and associates.
Open Source by the numbers
Groups supporting OSPOS
- TODO group: an open collective of OSPOs, largely corporate. TODO is founded with/by the Linux Foundation
- See, in particular, their overview presentation about TODO and OSPOs in general.
- OSPO++: A group of OSPOs specifically in academic or government contexts.
- The OSPOlogy project (part of TODO Group) is the active community/participation arm of TODO focused on the study of OSPOs.
I made a public and continually updated Zotero Library with references I’ve found useful in my thinking both about open source, and about OSPOs in particular.
