KickOff for UCOSP Projects


The UCSOP program is a nation-wide program in Canada targeted at university students in their last year working on a capstone project that emphasizes distributed teams and leverages Open Source.  The program has grown over the years and this year it includes 58 students from 16 Universities.

UCSOP is a great match for our Open Source Projects, and Tim Windsor ( ) thought so.  He put together a project on HTML5 Applications with BlackBerry where he is the lead point for a  team of six students from the University of British Columbia,  Laurentian University,  Ottawa University, and University of Waterloo.

The kickoff sprint on the project was this last week and the project is in full swing.  The main GitHub repositories where you will see participation are bbUI.js and the WebWorks Community APIs.  Read more details about this in Tim’s post

We will keep you posted of how the project progresses… and contact us if you are interested in starting similar projects elsewhere.
