D5 charter and open source

D5 founding members are United Kingdom, South Korea, Estonia, Israel and New Zealand

The D5 charter calls on members to work on a list of issues related to digital economy, including government commitment to open source software procurement, to be shared amongst D5, open standards, and a pledge to help all children learn to code, for the purpose of building the next generation of skills.

Interesting, not sure what the implications are for teaching students are. I would expect that given the focus of the charter on open source and open standards there may be an expectation that we teach open source philosophy and approaches to our students.
