Good news – SIGCSE accepted our 50 Ways poster proposal.
It is scheduled for Friday, March 2, 2012 from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM. 

Participating in free and open source software (FOSS) has numerous benefits
for students (and faculty), and there is increasing interest in encouraging
such participation.  There is a broad range of possible contributions to
FOSS projects including documentation, testing, coding, and more. This range
allows people with a variety of backgrounds, including little or no CS
background, to contribute to a FOSS project. This poster describes the
status of a project to identify and categorize learning activities that
contribute to FOSS, and to map these activities onto the CC2008 curriculum
model. We briefly summarize relevant background, describe the process used
to identify appropriate activities and provide examples of activities and
their mappings.
