Recently, I was invited by Prem to NASSCOM to give a brief talk on FOSS and Technology as part of the FOSS Wave community. Prem is doing a great job there by putting his effort in helping students from Tier2 and Tier3 cities. Around twenty enthusiastic students were selected and invited to Bengaluru to take part in such events. Mine was one of them. I conducted a GitHub session after Intro to FOSS and a brief intro about Fedora Project.
What is FOSS Wave? It’s a place to learn, teach, enrich and be part of FOSS revolution! It is an initiative to…
- spread FOSS knowledge
- connect with FOSS minded people across the globe
- help students contribute to FOSS projects, tools, and technologies
- Help students become industry ready.
In addition to sharing knowledge, FOSS Wave speakers also take part in organizing events and speaking in conferences across the globe. The FOSS Wave community consists of active contributors from across the globe. It includes both paid employees and volunteers who work towards the goals set forth in the FOSS revolution.
