  • Free/Libre/Open Source Software (FLOSS) presents a strategy for developing software products that is substantially different from what is usually taught in Software Engineering courses. This paper discusses the benefits of using FLOSS in Software Engineering Education, proposes a list of topics that should be covered in FLOSS-based Software Engineering courses and briefly reports our experience at two Brazilian universities.
