DU FOSS workshop #foss #workshop #event #delhi

Dear Friends,

Acharya Narendra Dev College in collaboration with NRCFOSS is organising a one day workshop on "Free/Open Source Software (FOSS): Awareness and Possibilities" at Sounth Campus, Delhi University on 16th April 2010.

This is an effort to make available Free Software alternatives to the ICT workshops in which the ILLL is promoting proprietary software from Microsoft.

Not only is Free Software more secure (free from virus and spyware) it also provides cost effective solutions which do not force the university and the colleges to keep spending on expensive and substandard software from proprietary sources.

The one day workshop for teachers of Humanities, Social Sciences and Commerce teachers of Delhi University will provide an introduction to Linux based Free Software and various applications/ programmes for everyday use at home and for academic purposes.

The workshop shall also include an Install Fest in which participants can bring in their laptops and CPUs to install Linux Operating System. Participants can chose to install Lunux/ Ubuntu OS on dual boot without removing existing Windows or Apple OS.

The event is free.

Please participate in the event and encourage as many of your colleagues to participate. If you have any queries please feel free to contact me or the organisers.

Regards,

(P.S.: The ANDC-NRCFOSS is also organising a two day specialised FOSS workshop for science teachers on 14-15 April 2010 at ANDC)
