The unconference has finally started with Kinshuk giving an introduction about Open source softwares. The session has started off as quite interactive. A video was shown titled “Open Source is Magic” by Chris DiBona from Google.  A talk by Atharva on Revision Control System is now about to start…

Well the start of the Unconference ahs been delayed due to CERN scientist Archana Sharma’s lecture which was going on at the same time. So the event now starts at 9:00 p.m. With half an hour to go lots of preparations are under way. Just now one of the speakers ahs turned up and is busy setting up his laptop.  The LTC QT where the session will be held is all set for action with Wi-Fi connec. A small crowd has already gathered to participate in the event and are patiently waiting for it to start.  Ok. Now I must sign off… Have some work to do… Catch you later…

The calm before the OSScamp

Today marks the start of FOSS Den @BITS-Pilani. So I thought I could put everyone up to date with what’s going on behind the scenes in the Den. Well, 1216 has been set up as the FOSS-Den and we have about 6 comps there loaded and ready. Plus we have prepared some presentations on open source softwares. Mostly the preparations at FOSS Den have been pretty fun with everyone engrossed in the work. In fact people were so engrossed in their work, nobody noticed me sneakily playing Diablo on my computer side by side ;). Anyways now back to some serious stuff… Let me brush up on today’s schedule

  • 08pm – 10pm: Social Sandbox: Open Source, Unconferences, India – @LTC
  • 10pm – 12am: Sessions and Talks (4 Slots Available) – @LTC
  • 12am – 02am: FOSS Hackathon – @LTC QT

Personally I am looking forward for the session at M-Lawns. Open air, Lawns… It is going to be one heck of an event. The OSScamp is going to be ‘OSS’ome :). Keep watching this space for more details…
