FSF campaigns manager speaks about free software at iD Programming Academy
FSF campaigns manager Zak Rogoff once worked as an instructor at iD Tech Camps. He returned in August to introduce students to free software.
iD Programming Academy is a two-week, pre-college, summer program where students aged thirteen to eighteen immerse in programming, application development, engineering, and robotics. It’s held at universities nationwide including MIT, where Richard Stallman first launched the GNU System thirty years ago. Students at iD Tech already use some free software tools in their courses, and many were curious to learn about the ethical issues surrounding computing. They also expressed interest in the FSF's internship program, which is open to people of all ages.
