Introduction to FOSS and Open Source Technologies :- Enjoying the true spirit of Freedom
Welcome back!Long since I blogged here and here is right time for doing it.We are celebrating the Software Freedom Week at SASTRA University from September 21 -September 26.So that means it started off today,and the first session was an introduction to Open source technologies and kind of orientation in the software freedom week,and also some of the othere folks who missed it last time.This time the event poster was made by me,which people said it looked like NOTICE.(but I suppose both convey information).So we have formed a team of 22 organisers to organise the entire event,who have started doing installation points all through the campus.
I spoke about Open Source,Open source Ecosystem,Students role in the same.I started speaking about D's(Dwarak :P),then about Devlopment,Distribution,Documentation(Distribution).I also shared some examples,tech jokes,and also some interesting statistics about open source technology.I saw a new set of first year folks who were very enthusiatic.I gave OSUM badges and my contact number as giveaways : P
Overall,it gave a good start to the Software Freedom Week Celebrations'09.
Thanks to all the organizers.
