FOSSMeet is the annual Free and Open source software meet at NIT Calicut. We are inviting proposals for talks and workshops at FOSSMeet 2016.
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 folks here.
Your audience (mostly) comprises of smart, above average, GNU/Linux aware students.

Deploying a CoreOS Cluster over Cloud
Learn very basics of CoreOS, and see how to create a cluster using Virtual Machines over Cloud.
CoreOS is a lightweight version of Linux designed to support rapid creation of potentially very large clusters of VMs that use Linux containers as the only packaging mechanism, including Docker containers. This session describes the basics of CoreOS, and discusses why one should be using the CoreOS if you are using the Linux Containers. Also we’ll see how to deploy a CoreOS cluster using Virtual machines over cloud.
Linux, Virtual Machines, Azure/AWS (optional), CoreOS (Optional)
