Two days workshop was conducted in Acharya Narendra Dev College Govindpuri, Kalkaji, New Delhi 110019 about Application of FOSS in Science Education & Research .. It was jointly organized by NRCFOSS/AU with ANDC, New Delhi.
Here my experience on that……
On 10th April night we start from chennai by tamilnadu express at 10 p.m. It was a nice journey, this is the first time i travel in train a long time(33hours). 12th April Monday morning we reached Nizhamudin station by 8 o’clock. From there we went to NCERT Guest house by prepaid taxi, reached there by 11 o’clock and get ready to go the ANDC college.
we reached the college by 2 o’clock, after had our lunch we start work on the labs, till 6 o’clock we worked there and returned to guest house by 8 o’clock and went sleep by 10 o’clock(today travel tired so slept soon 🙂 )
The second day 13th April we went to ANDC college and setup the labs , evening around 5 o’clock we finished the work now the the labs are ready to workshop. we install ubuntu in 4 labs, this ubuntu OS is customized by our people with the FOSS Tools.
The third day 14th April, this is the first day of workshop. Morning 9 o’clock the inauguration lots of people came, combined session was goes till lunch, after that there was a parallel session for the different department (Biology,Chemistry,Physics,Maths,Computer Science) peoples.
The fourth day 15th April, this day also started with the parallel session and we thought the customization also to the people in the FOSS Tools, they are really enjoyed to do the customization. After complete the parallel session certificate distribution. Then we people(NRCFOSS Team) went Delhi University South Campus to discuss about the next day session.
The fifth day 16th April, we went Delhi University South Campus, there was a session about FOSS history, philosophy and all. There also we taught the people to install ubuntu in their laptop. Some of them bring their own laptop, for others Delhi University South Campus provides the laptop. After complete the session we went Lotus Temple(great place i seen) and lajpat nagar for shopping but i cant buy anything because the time is around 8 o’clock we went there, the shops are closed one by one we did window shopping only then we reached the guest by 10 o’clock and packed our things(next day morning have to leave from there so only 😦 ).
The sixth day 17th April, we started from the guest house by 5 o’clock and reached airport by 6. This is the first time i travel in flight. After completed the checking we entered in the flight by 6.45 and settled to their place. The flight(Spice Jet) was started by 7.20 and we reached chennai airport by 9.55
