Open-source robotics has been under the spotlight for several years now with the advent of platforms such as Arduino or projects such as Dronecode. Its roots predates those mainstream projects though, with a sharing culture being central to many robotics groups.

This talk will present a restrospective of ten years of participation to the international amateur robotics contest Eurobot in an academic an hobbyist enviroment. In addition to the technical presentation, it will explain the sharing culture promoted by the organisers, and highlight approaches taken by different teams to share knowledge through open-source. Personal experience will be detailed, describing the challenges encountered when promoting free software robotics among university students.
