Pwned! FOSS event concluded!

Duh! Long overdue for this post. Almost 500 students attended the FOSS Fest during Sakshama :-) Mostly undergrad prefinal and final year engineering students. We started barely 20 days before and managed to finish everything right in time! quickfire way :-) Most of us wishfully had almost none or less than 2-3 hours of sleep for the 3 days of the event, it was fun! - Reason: The days were reserved for the FOSS talks, and the mid-nights for Hands-on DIY sessions. Thanks to: Leslie and Ellen from Google Open Source Office, Rahul Sundaram and Shankarsan for Fedora goodies, Kinshuk for the help he provided in managing the event, kunal for the t-shirts printing, skbohra , niyam , paras, manu , chits, jdk, zugard team and all the juniors who worked hard together to make the event success :-) The experience can't by described in this short sleep deprived post. :-) Till the longer version, a small Flickr Stream of some photographs.   Here's the FOSS GN09 Report
