FOSSMeet 2015

The funnel is a space for proposals and voting on events.

FOSSMeet is the annual Free and Open source software meet at NIT Calicut. We are inviting proposals for talks and workshops at FOSSMeet 2015.

What we are looking for

Through FOSSMeet, we intend to get the attendees, mostly students, get started with the development and usage of free software. You may propose to conduct a lecture, demo, tutorial, workshop, discussion or panel at FOSSMeet. If the contents of your session is the ‘I am feeling lucky’ result of some Google search, there is low probability that it’ll be accepted. Same applies to proposals titled ‘The absolute beginner introduction to X’ and others on a similar line. On the other hand, if your talk is on some obscure, albeit important, free software project that will go over most students head, this might not be the best platform to deliver that talk. There are always exceptions and we leave that to your judgement. If our audience wants it, we’ll try our best to accommodate it. Of course, if you find people interested in your proposal, you can always call a BoF. We are all for BoF’s! :)

Take the above with a pinch of salt. They are no s̶t̶r̶i̶c̶t̶ ̶r̶u̶l̶e̶s̶, only guidelines. All your proposals are welcome and we celebrate every single one that we receive! :D Looking forward to see you guys here.

Audience

Your audience (mostly) comprises of smart, above average, GNU/Linux aware students.

Speaker bio

I am a final year MBBS student at Mysore Medical College, a volunteer for Mozilla, Telegram Messenger, Indian Pirates, and de-facto any FOSS project I can contribute to. I believe in the power of Internet and am an Internet Rights (armchair) activist. I think everyone should be able to start publishing on the web on their own. Building learnlearn.in taught me the important fundamentals of the web stack and I am sure anyone who builds a website will learn the same over time.
