Foresight Institute of Management conducted Fedora workshop

Foresight Institute, Pune, December 3, 2011, India

workshop on Fedora

We had conducted a one-day introductory workshop on Fedora at
Foresight Institute of Management and Research, affiliated to
University of Pune, Maharashtra, India on Saturday, December 3, 2011.

We started the day's proceedings with an introduction to free/open
source software. Most of the students who participated were studying
towards their bachelor's programme in computer applications (BCA), and
were familiar with C, C++ and Java development. We gave a 

demo of theFedora desktop, and also showed them the plethora of 
software that they can use.

We also introduced them to revision control with examples on using git.
We also addressed the various communication tools that we use, the
basic communication guidelines, and the Fedora sub-projects that they
can participate in.

During the post-lunch session, We explained to them about copyright,
trademarks, and licensing, and how to use them. We explained the basic
concepts in installation, and gave them a demo of installation of
Fedora. We have given them CD/DVD images of both Fedora 15 and 16.

Thanks to Antriksh Shah for working with us for a month in organizing
this workshop.
