The workshop at the Inderprastha Engineering College, Sahibabad
was a great success. Here is an outline of the workshop:
o There were about 100 attendees, including at least 50 students.
Though the workshop started late, and went till past 6.30pm,
most of the attendees were patient enough to stay till the end.
o The presentations included:
- Open source, and NLP: Dr. Om Vikas, Director, IPEC

- Python programming: Piyush Verma, ILUG-D
- Python programming: Applications on Facebook, Twitter, etc.
Dipankar Sarkar, ILUG-D

o We have been requested to do more such workshops over this
summer, with at least three more in the pipeline by August.
Anyone who attended the IPEC workshop is requested to provide
feedback, preferably on the Wiki page at

who will be posting them online, and announcing the same

them available online.
