If you are attending the event, make sure you collect your cool delegate kit. The delegate kit consists of a FOSS mug, open software stickers, and a couple of DVDs. Latest Sun software (including OpenSolaris) is part of the delegate kit. You get to pick a nice FOSS t-shirt too at just Rs. 100/- or $2. This is half the actual price. All this in an elegant cloth bag.
Talking about the "event FOSS" itself, it would be imprudent to call it a conference. FOSS is better classified as an informal geek meetup! The only thing fixed about the event is the agenda. If you have something to share, you can always call for a BoF (or Birds of a Feather) where you can talk to individuals with similar interest. If you want to show a demo of some technology/software and think some folks would be interested, you can call for a BoF by all means. Just use the charts at the corridor and indicate the demo name near the entrance of a BoF tent. As you can see, the event is quite informal. And that adds to the charm.
The weather in Bangalore today is the best that you could have asked for. It is chill and there is a light drizzle! Inside the campus, there are snacks to much and unlimited free wi-fi. What more do geeks want?
