When it comes to the role of technology in everyday human life, the tone of the public debate is increasingly pessimistic as machines and digitalisation seem to de-socialise people. This thesis investigates free and open source software development and at the individual and communal learning methods that flow from these technological practices.

Read Between the Lines {of Code} calls into question how technology is potentially flowing from, towards and in between individuals. Studying technological practices, rather than the technologies themselves shows how they are inherently social and cultural.
