Kongu foss workshop concludes successfully ...FOSS workshop at Sri Krishna Eng college inspires college lecturers
A 2 day FOSS workshop was held at Sri Krishna Engineering college, Coimbatore on the 5th and 6th of September. Around 40 lecturers from colleges as far away as Tiruchengode and Nammakkal attended. Sri Krishna provided a lab full of FC9 machines so the participants could get hands-on experience of working with linux.
The response was surprising. Past experience has been that lecturers are only interested in stuff that is in the syllabus and usually attend such workshops only to get certificates. It was not so this time. The sessions were very active with lots of questions and discussion going on and both the faculty and the participants thoroughly enjoyed themselves. During the feedback, there was a unanimous demand for more focussed and indepth workshops. A detailed report is being assembled here
