Aug 15th, 1947 - India stepped into the world as an independent nation. The battle our forefathers fought for us mean that we have the right to exercise our free will today. I have always been intrigued by what the current generation thinks about this struggle. It was a learning experience for me to try and understand. I learnt one thing - the basics premise behind the struggle has its appeal even today. But, it has an interesting twist. This generation is worried about freedom - to choose, but the way it manifests was the reason why I was intrigued. One of the coolest ways is the interest in FOSS (free and open source software) today.
That said, I want to talk about an event that is happening right now - Sun India 'Code for Freedom' contest. It encourages students to contribute to FOSS. It has been said that the amount of code level contributions from Indian developers to the opensource/FOSS projects has been less than satisfactory. I wish this would change. And the 'Code for Freedom' is definitely trying it best to make a difference.
So, if you are a student in India, pick your choice of a FOSS project from 'Code for Freedom' and start writing code.
I would like to sign off by saying - 'Show me your code folks!'
