Lernen in informellen, internetbasierten Netzwerken : Einflussfaktoren auf den Aufbau von Kompetenzen in Entwicklungsgemeinschaften der Free / Open-Source Bewegung

Universität Rostock, 2021

Abstract: The dissertation examines the building of competencies in Internet-based communities. Using different software development communities of the free / open source movement, the informal learning of the participants is described. It is shown how learning takes place, why people participate, and what participants learn during their self-directed, voluntary engagement. It is based on an analysis of contributions to the public mailing list, version control metadata from the FLOSS project, and interviews with developers.
