As always, campus ambassadors are busy working with technologies and sharing what they learn. Here are a few recent blog postings:

Jay Mahadeokar of Shri Ramdeobaba Kamla Nehru Engineering College (SRKNEC), Nagpur, India, has been busy since July organizing events on the SRKNEC campus with his colleague Vasusen Patil.

Take a look.
