Open Source Development

Last Thursday, 19th of November, we have had the honor of recieving an all surrounding talk about the topic Open Source Development, reaching from what license to use over the steps how a project is changed and developed over time and finally how to distribute your package to the rest of the world.

Therefor the both ex-members of the IEEE Student Branch Passau went further into detail about Version Control Systems (like GitHub for example), how to version your process correctly and keep track of the changes. Furthermore they explained the best ways to contribute, run your project through automatic tests and finally distribute and promote your result, once it is finished.

Overall this was the go-to event if you were interested in Open Source Development or just wanted to hear about new things in this area, like the benefits and measures of providing your work for others but recieving someone elses work as well.
