Open Source Explained in Less Than Three Minutes

Free Code Camp is an organization that teaches people to code. As part of this free training, student coders produce free code needed by nonprofit organizations. Free Code Camp doesn’t accept donations, but you can support them by buying t-shirts, hoodies and audiobooks through their store.

The Video Screening Room

Anthony McDonald, part of Free Code Camp in Phoenix, Arizona, does a nice job of explaining open source in this short video.

If you’re an open source believer, get involved in explaining it on YouTube. If you’re camera shy, that’s fine — just make sure you’re actively supporting the people who are not camera shy. Leave a supportive short comment, subscribe to their channel, tell others about their channel, etc.

For the past 10 years, Phil has been working at a public library in the Washington D.C.-area, helping youth and adults use the 28 public Linux stations the library offers seven days a week. He also writes for MAKE magazine, Opensource.com and TechSoup Libraries. Suggest videos by contacting Phil on Twitter or at pshapiro@his.com.
