Amrita Open Source University Meetup (AOSUM)
By Avinash Joshi on Jan 24, 2009
The Open-Source University Meet-Up (OSUM) is a student developer organization that educates its members about the latest open-source technologies in a fun and engaging way.
Through its on-campus activities, Sun sponsored OSUMs will receive access to technical information that can be shared with OSUM members via technical demonstrations. Additionally, online web courses, through the Sun Academic Initiative program will be available to the OSUM to provide an opportunity to get its members Sun Certified.
Sun has a social networking web site for all registered OSUMs. This online presence will enable the OSUM community to connect with other student developers worldwide. OSUMs can collaborate online in forums and community groups with other student developers who share their technical interests.
Overall, the OSUM is a one-stop community that will expand the educational training and social interaction of the up-and-coming tech-savvy student preparing to enter the global workforce. Find and join your university's OSUM today!
