Linux Demo Day in Jaya Engineering Collge

Indian Linux User Group - Chennai (ilugc) and Jaya Engineering College
are jointly organzing a major event along the lines of FOSS awareness
drive. The event is called ' Linux Demo Day ' and its gonna happen in
a couple of weeks. Further information follows here..

Linux Demo Day : Its one of the important event that ilugc has been
organizing for sometime now. This is a very dynamic event, which makes
n00b tuxians confident about their own skills. This is an opportunity
for the young minds to work with experienced tuxians and participate
in community efforts, which has been part and parcel of tuxian's life.
In this event, student volunteers are trained in a wide range of
topics under the FLOSS umbrella. At the end of the learning period,
which lasts for around 2 weeks, they put up a show of their newly
earned skills. Stalls are put up in a huge auditorium or ground, each
stall concentrating on one topic ranging from desktops and distros to
kernel and networking. Thus almost A-Z of Linux and Open Source is
covered in these stalls. The students are entitled to explain to the
visitors, who vary from school kids, college students to general
public, how FLOSS can be implemented to the betterment of their lives.
Students have to face a wide flavour of audience who may end up
providing them more info as well as some may test their patience. All
together its a show of the 'Freedom' and 'Desire to share knowledge'
of the FLOSS Community, but not from expeirences FOSS fellows rather
by budding FOSS'ians. :)
