What's New and Cool in Open Source

This page was created for a presentation at MaineEd 2009 on October 16, 2009 at the Augusta Civic Center in Maine, USA.


We have a short period of time together, but in that time I'd like to show you some of the new and exciting projects in Open Source software that I've run across in my recent work in my own classroom. I'm constantly on the lookout for the "next big thing" and sometimes I stumble upon a gem. I'd like to share a few of those gems with you today. Let's take a look...shall we?

Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala)
