Jabalpur LUG event, 17th June’08

With the help of jbp-lug members I have organized a LUG event at Takshila Engineering college, Jabalpur.

Around 20 students from different engineering colleges attended the event. 80% students of city like Jabalpur lack the practical understanding of the subjects; they just somehow read them to pass the exams. As per my understanding lack of resources, awareness and mentors is the root cause of this.Groups like LUGs can be very useful here.

  1. Hi, I have started up with my own venture The OpenSourceDeal and I’m doing my bit to spread Open Source and in the process trying to prove that it can have a successful Business model. But my main goal is exactly what you are set out to do : make sure that Open Source software is available to as many as possible in as cheap a way as possible and the Jabalpur-LUG is my primary target customer-base.
