FossConf 2009 & Ubuntu Tamil Team

Grand Conference - Welcoming Everyone

Grand Welcome

We had a Stall for people who visited FossConf-2009 held at Thiagaraya Engineering College, Madurai from Feb 27 to Mar 01. Padmanathan of our Team was there fulltime for all three days explaining all that we do. I was there for the second day. And we shared Fedora DVDs too for the participants. Thanks to Fedora Indian Team.

The conference was divided into three categories – Stalls, FOSS Project Demos and Talks. We took the Stall and most Stalls around were also using Ubuntu 🙂

Notable in the conference was the enthusiasm shown by kids from TVS Schools of Madurai. It was a wonderful event Organised by TCE and hats of to the Organisers.
