Abstract:

<p>The expectations of industry from Computer Science (CS) graduates is increasing as technology is advancing rapidly. Despite the several measures taken by academia to gear up their curriculum to match the expectations, the software industry still sees a lot of gap in the skill level. In this paper we have explored the possibility of using Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) and FOSS activities to bridge this skill gap.</p>
