Software Freedom Day 2011 at BMSCE Bangalore

Who doesn't like pleasant surprises? I got one this September when Vinay S Rao, one of my juniors at my college told me that they will be celebrating Software Freedom Day 2011. I was happy, for the fact that the sprit of Freedom and Openness was still alive in my college, and there are people to carry it forward.

Hack Fest at Avalanche 2010

I still remember the day when I entered into the hall where hackfest was going to happen in at Genesis 2007. Just like everybody else I though they'll teach how to intrude into others' systems and do other crazy stuff. Little did I realize that it was a day when I was going to change; my way of computing was going to change.

(Here, the word hack will be used as per defined here)

Having a good time with KDE

I never thought I'd be having so much fun with KDE and FOSS Software as a whole. Its such a good way to learn things and contribute to something which is really beautiful.
In January, I was studying Qt because I found it very interesting, and its cross platform nature really made me to plan serious development.
Then I started to use KDE, which has a very intuitive interface for users. But here comes the real benefit - KDE is a Free Software, so anyone can contribute to the system and improve on it.

t was 28th Of September, 2008 and there was again crowd at the Microsoft India Office, Bangalore. This time I was able to attend a hands-on session about "Singularity", an open-source Operating System, being developed by Microsoft Research (relevant links at end of the post). I attended the 2nd batch of around 35 people in a lab in the building. I was excited because of the two words Open Source and Microsoft were coming at once.
