In this paper we present OSS Factory (Open Source Software Factory), an ecosystem aligning software demands, undergraduate Computing students qualification and Open Software practices in a collaborating relation, dedicated to produce open software applications to cope with market demands, using students coding potential. A contest among students attending software engineering courses (or volunteers), guided by professors and coordinated by a central entity, is the force to move OSS Factory. To validate elements and interaction proposed, experiments applying the structure described in the paper have been performed and positive results were achieved.
