Ubuntu Tamil Team had its Intrepid Release Event on Nov 09 at Erode. Erode IT Association had made complete arrangements for the event. Myself and Padmanathan from Ubuntu Tamil Team took part and conducted event.
It was a day long event with the participants introduced hands on to Ubuntu, starting from Ubuntu Installation, Setting Tamil Features, Listening to Songs, Playing Videos, Repository and package Management, GNU/ Linux File Structure etc.,
Participants took part with great interest. We made use of Cutomised Tamil Version of Ubuntu for the event which received great response from the participants. Special Thanks to members of Erode IT Association, Raja, Balu, Srinivasan, Manohar, Mutharasu for organising this event in such a short span of time, immediately after we called for hosting such an event outside Chennai, the Capital of TamilNadu.
Erode IT association has announced a Ubuntu Competition for participants to keep the momemtum going! This has paved way for more events, the details of which will be furnished soon :-)
