NIE Mysore – Libre’ 08 – Open Source & Careers
On Saturday, I was in NIE, Mysore to give a talk on ‘Open Source & Careers’. The event was organized by “OBSCURA Open Source Club“. The purpose of the talk was to let students know that there are good career options in FOSS.
All I tried to do was project some statistics to show that they can pursue their contributions in FOSS as their career. As usual, they had doubts on FOSS business model and lots of questions on “How to get started?”. Thanks to Sankar (Our SUSE Goodies guy ! 😉 ), I gave out DVDs of openSUSE 10.3.
I enjoyed the day. First thing I noticed in Mysore was very less traffic and wide roads ! 🙂 . Went to my favourite restaurent in mysore, “Gufha” for lunch. Thanks to Bipin, was with me the whole day ( Geeky chats ! ). And i learnt little about night photography !
