registered in the wiki . Now all the speakers, participants and
attendees are requested to register to the FUDCon Pune Website .
Please take a note that we are tracking all the submissions only
through the website  now. Therefore you are requested to register
and submit your talks to the website .
Why are we doing this?
We do not have contact information of all the speakers who had
proposed a Talk, or a HackFest session in wiki. Therefore it is
important for you to register and submit your talk to the website .
How do I register?

OpenID. Just click "LOGIN".

When is the registration deadline?
There is no deadline for registering for FUDCon Pune. However do
note that you can only submit a session after you have registered, so
do not delay your registration until the last moment.
Let us know if you face any issue with registration or submissions.
The booklet is mostly complete. There are a few things that need to be
added, information that I do not have. Can you folks meet for a brief
30-45 minute meeting over at #fedora tomorrow night please? Say 10pm
We could complete the booklet so mether can push it for printing etc.
Info that is needed:
- schedule info
- some event details
- some details on Pune
- the open street map needs to be populated with anchors.
I was going through FUDCon:India 2011 page  and thought that it
would be great if we can show Venue Location on the page using Open
Street Maps or Wiki Mapia. We can put up a link of Open Street Maps or
Wiki Mapia on the page for the reference.
This will help attendees coming for the event. Local Pune attendees
will also benefit from this as they would know which is the Shortest
Path to reach the venue. :)

What I want is freedom, not life, nor pleasure, nor good!
FOSS gives that.
Thinvent is develops free and open source software solutions. We
service large government clients, design hardware and embedded
systems, produce a Linux distribution of our own, and participate in
some of the largest IT deployments in India.
We require Linux System Administrators, who will be responsible for
the development, maintenance and deployment of our Linux based
products. Successful candidates will posses a Bachelor’s degree in
Computer Science or a related field, and have two years of experience
performing duties similar to those required of this position.
Candidates must have intimate familiarity with the Linux operating
system; excellent organization and time management skills; flexibility
to handle a variety of tasks and shift priorities simultaneously;
solid verbal, written communication skills are essential to interact
effectively with team members and customers; ability to work in and
contribute to a team-oriented environment; attention to detail and a
process-oriented individual is desired.
If you live and breathe computers, can extract relevant information
from the Internet at the speed of light, don’t have to refer to man
pages to use console commands, can write shell scripts and C and Perl
programs, can use and abuse package repositories, and would love to be
a part of a leading Linux development organisation, then feel free to
write us at jobs(a)thinvent.in.
I don't know if commercial or OT postings are allowed to this list. My
organisation is looking to hire folks with Fedora experience - a
combination of developers and admins
(http://www.thinvent.in/about-us/jobs). Is this list the right place
or should I post somewhere else?
