SFD @ Amrita - Mysore Campus

SFD @ Amrita was great! All of us had fun that day. There were a lot of participants from the Amrita mysore campus. It was held on 30th Sept 2008

My first session was on on Insight Into Open Source:
     It was basically about what is open source, why is it so important, what you as students and developers can do in opensource and stuff like that. ( slide )

Second session was taken by my friend Varun. It was an intro to Ubuntu( ubuntu is an open source linux distribution).
     He spoke about ubuntu and how to contribute into ubuntu. ( slide )

After this, i showed them the Big Buck Bunny Video

We then broke for Lunch.

My second session was on Sun Microsystems as a company, what is the company all about and why is it so much into opensource.

The afternoon session was focused on Drupal: Taken by both of us - Varun
    This is about how you can build your own website very easily with just some clicks :)
