I conducted an “Introduction to FLOSS” workshop today, Monday, July 31, 2006 at MNM Jain Engineering College, Thorappakkam, Tamil Nadu, India.

I would like to thank Prashant Mohan (ILUGC), Vidhya Shankar (student), Assitant Professor Muthu Sundar (Assistant Professor, CSE) for taking the initiative.

I discussed career opporunities with FLOSS, introduced the GNU/Linux desktop, and played the movie, “The Revolution OS”.

IBM has started doing some good projects using GNU/Linux with the college.

Prof. Muthu Sundar is already in touch with NRCFOSS, and is planning to get more students to work on FLOSS projects with them.
