session+workshop because you missed the // session at FOSS lab .
Anyways we can add stuff from
Where praveen after the endless thank you notes has started his actual post by
"An old Chinese saying says:
Give a person a fish, and you feed them for a day. Teach a person how
to fish, and you feed them for a lifetime.
That has been my approach through out the workshop. I taught them
where to find the information they need, gave hints when they needed
it, shared my experiences. I started with asking them to search for
‘debian policy’ and keep it open in a tab. Then ‘debian new maintainer
guide’ and lekhonee. It is important to remember the key words, we can
always find the link with a search engine."
.....Continued at his blog :)
I am not sure if it qualifies as a part of report but I do think
COFSUG and Abhijits efforts should be mentioned because without them
the event wouldn't have been such a success .
Once again I am not sure if it is informal to mention that praveen
became a maintainer right in between day 1 and day2 isntead of '
Praveen Arimbrathodiyil, our newestDebian Maintainer'
The numbers are inaccurate : as far as my enquiry goes the numbers are
near 130 on day 1 and 50 -55 on day 2 ( day 2 count could be simply
taken as seating capacity of FOSS lab + 5- 10 chairs )
