in Computer Science. At college, we have been thinking about what we can do
to spread the word about open source software and related ideas. Our course
involves studying software development in this semester and an overview of
the Linux operating system in the next semester. I am relatively sure that
anything related to open source software, therefore, should neatly fit into
the general state of affairs.
At the risk of going slightly off-track, I'll mention that most of us
(students, including me) missed out on the recent conference because the
dates clashed directly with our end-of-sem exams. I regret missing the
conference (I signed up on this list after reading an advert in a newspaper
and our exam schedule released soon after that). I was thinking if something
along the lines of a small one-day workshop can be arranged for in college,
involving a couple of talks, and of course, distributing DVDs, etc. However,
this is just an idea, and I will understand if it's too much trouble and
cannot be done.
Finally, I will say that I will be more than happy to volunteer for anything
if such an event is considered. However, I have not proposed this formally to
the department at college - and while I am sure they will have no objection,
I cannot speak on their behalf, so I will need to confirm their approval at
some point of time. This will be Mount Carmel College, near Palace Grounds.
Thanks for your consideration.
With warm regards,
