Software Freedom Day 2009 Celebrations @ Rajagiri

September 22nd, 2009


ILUG Cochin has participated in the Software Freedom Day 2009 Celebrations held at Rajagiri College of Social Sciences, Kalamasserry, Ernakulam. We were also one of the organizers of the event. It was a one day program. We have also put a stall at the venue which helped students and other people to clear their doubts, both technical and non-technical, about Free Software. There were seminars, exhibitions, technical talks. The seminar, “Introduction to Free Software” by Sreenadh and “FOSS in Web development” by Binny were some of them.

The event inspired some of the students at Rajagiri to start a Free Software User Group. There were students from VHSS Irimpanam who have put a stall for “Malayalam Computing” and also exhibited different Computer Hardware. There were also some students from GTHSS and they exhibited “WordPress”, a Free Software application for blogging.
