The Samba Project: Transformation of Self through Open Source Software Development

Props to Bec’s brother Nico who has completed a thesis on the Samba community.

This research is an exploratory study into the constitution of identity in the Samba community. The results presented are based upon an analysis of documents, websites, internet-relay-chat (IRC), mailing lists, private correspondence and face-to-face interviews. The primary method of data collection was the semi-structured interview method.
