An event was held at Kendre Vidyalaya No. 1 AFS, Jodhpur, Rajasthan,
India on Thursday, April 25, 2013.
The day started with the talks regarding the problem faced by students and
faculties while using their computers specifically about software and
operating system which was followed by "Introduction to Open Source". I
told the students about the available "Free Software" and "Why to use them
?", under which I basically focused at introduction those software which
are mostly used by the students. This was followed by the "Introduction to
Fedora." I gave them a demo of Fedora 17 Operating System through Live CD
and showed them how to use it.
After a short break, a hand-on session of how to install Fedora 17 and use
it was carried out followed by Q/A session in which difference between
Linux and Windows, and various others common queries of students were
answered. I also distributed Fedora 17 iso images to the students and
I sincerely thank Prof. Usha Tholiya and Prof. Gautam Chand for
helping me out through out session and preparing Labs.
The photos taken during the event are available on my blog.

A Fedora Activity Day  was held at Sri Jayachamarajendra College Of
Engineering , Mysore, Karnataka, India on Saturday, April 20, 2013.
The agenda included talks in the morning, and practical sessions in
the afternoon. I started the day's proceedings on best practices to be
followed when working with free/open source software projects, giving
examples on effective project, and communication guidelines . The
various Fedora sub-projects  that students can contribute to were
mentioned. This was followed by an introductory session on Python by
Aravinda V K . The "Python: Introduction for Programmers"
presentation  was given to the students. Vijaykumar Koppad  then
gave an overview, and a demo of the Gluster file system .
After lunch, we had a Q&A session with the participants. Questions on
working with free/open source software projects, differences between
file systems, GNU/Linux distributions, and programming languages were
answered. Basic installation and troubleshooting techniques were
discussed. I addressed system architecture design concepts,
compilation, cross-compilation, and revision control systems, and
briefed them on copyright, and licensing. Students had brought their
laptops to work on Python scripting, and GlusterFS. I also worked on
few bug fixes, package builds for ARM, and package updates:
