One of the many interesting, inspiring people I met at the Community Leadership Summit was Mel Chua. Mel left the event early to head to a bootcamp (POSSE 2009: Professor's Open Source Summer Experience) for educators who are interested in teaching classes on open source.

According to the event site:

Sponsored by Red Hat, the POSSE program is a weeklong bootcamp that will immerse professors in open source projects. Participants will spend a week of intensive participation in selected open source projects, led by professors with experience in teaching open source development, in partnership with community members who have deep experience and insight. By the end of the session, participants should have a much better understanding of the workings of open source projects, and a strong network of contacts to lean on as they begin to bring students into the open source world.

Check out the event site for more information, or follow on Twitter: http://twitter.com/posse2009
