We are students from College of Engineering, Pune and are organizing an event, FOSSMEET, to promote the adoption, development and philosophy of Free Software and Open Source Software. With two successful editions already under the belt, we are back with the third edition of COEP FOSSMEET. Arranging talks and conducting hands-on workshops has been a proven way to transform students and developers alike into FOSS enthusiasts (possible contributors!). To make it possible, who better to call upon than FOSS aficionados?
If you are intrigued about COEP FOSSMEET or would be interested in carrying out a workshop/talk, under the banner of FOSSMEET’20, do visit our website: foss.coep.org.in/fossmeet. The process to submit a proposal is to fill the form under the “Call for Talks” tab and submit your proposal. The deadline for same is 20th February.
We hope to see you at COEP, if not as a speaker then as a participant. For any queries, feel to free to contact us as well.
There will be a Debian booth at the upcoming DevConf India (
https://devconf.info/in/2019) 2019 conference.
"DevConf.IN is the annual Developers' Conference organized by Red Hat in
India. It is meant to provide a platform to the local FOSS community
participants to come together and engage in knowledge sharing through
technical talks, workshops, panel discussions, hackathon and such
So far two people agreed to volunteer in the booth. It'll be lovely if
some more people can join. There are plenty of opportunities for you to
help like answering questions from visitors, help in selling goodies
(haven't decided), bring some goodies yourself to the booth.
If you have a Debian standee banner (or design) and debian stickers
Otherwise, If you are attending the DevConf, please pass by the booth.
Folks, we have been running poddery.com for last 6 years, started as a diaspora pod, with xmpp and matrix added later, all using the same username and password.
When a lot of computing moved to "cloud", we have to step up our game to have Free Software based services and collective control.
Since social media has network effect (you have to use the services used by your friends), it is much harder to get people to switch, though technically it is much simpler compared to GNU/Linux installation in the early days.
It is fully funded and managed by the Free Software Community of India. I'm part of the team that runs this service. Now we need your help to make our third crowd funding campaign successful. Contribute and share the campaign. https://fund.poddery.com/
