California-sponsered open textbooksPosted: September 28, 2012
Hopefully we’ll get at least one solid CS textbook out of this. There are open texts for CS0, CS1, and data structures, but the air gets pretty thin once you get into higher altitudes.
I’ll be following this as it develops, since it might be a way to move forward on the open, accessible algorithm textbook idea I’ve been kicking around on the backburner.
Also, I’m happy to see they went with CC-BY, a well-established and permissive license, rather than introducing Yet Another Watered-Down Open License.
