In preparation to FUDCon, Pune 2011 , we had organized our second
Fedora Activity Day (FAD)  at the FOSS Lab, College of Engineering,
Pune, India  on Saturday, October 8, 2011. Thanks to COEP for
hosting the FAD, and to Prof. Abhijit  for working with us in
organizing the same.
Saleem Ansari  had setup http://fudcon.in using Conference
Organization Distribution , which we used it for registration at
Prasad Pandit  started the day's proceedings with an introduction
to Python . Basic syntax, semantics of Python were covered, and we
helped the participants in getting started in writing simple scripts.
I then presented an overview of contributing to Fedora using the
"i-want-2-do-project. tell-me-wat-2-do-fedora"  presentation, and
the various communication channels that they need to be familiar with
to work with the larger Fedora community.
We had lunch at the COEP Boat Club  canteen. After lunch, Kashyap
Chamarthy  presented KVM virtualization  in Fedora
illustrating examples using libvirt and virt tools. Amit Shah  and
Kashyap answered queries regarding virtualization. Saleem Ansari then
presented an introduction to web development and Django ,
illustrating the use of model, view and template design. I concluded
the day's sessions with an introduction to git using the "di-git-ally
managing love letters" presentation .
Few photos taken at the event are available in my /gallery .
