OS expo From Computer society

Dates: March 7-10
Venue: Dhwani Reception Hall

With the objective of promoting the use of Free and Open Source Software, IEEE CS CET held an OS Expo as part of Dhwani-2013, the annual inter-collegiate cultural festival of College Of Engineering, Trivandrum.

Many versions of FOS Software were kept on display throughout the four days of the fest. Our volunteers, Mr. Rohan Reji, Mr. Mathews Joy and Mr. Kevin Martin of IInd year CSE, explained the various features of the different versions of the software on display to the visitors. A Freedom Toaster, a machine containing all the Free Software, was brought in, with the help of Zyxware Technologies, Techno Park, Trivandrum. The Freedom Box enabled the visitors to take home the open software of their interest.

The OS expo was an eye-opener for most of the visitors as they opined that they were getting to know about Free And Open source Software for the first time. They were very happy to take with them  some of the OS as well.

Mr. Arun Joseph. of IInd year CSE who was the lead in-charge of the Freedom Box, put forward a very efficient team and did a great job. The Freedom Toaster is now on display at the Technical Library of the college. .
