What is FOSSMeet?

FOSSMeet is an annual event on Free and Open Source Software, conducted at National Institute of Technology, Calicut. Started with a vision to create a culture of innovation, evolution and open standards, the meet intends to support the FOSS community and the dissemination of FOSS ideology through hands-on sessions, discussions and lectures. Nothing better to get you introduced to the world of FOSS.

Pre-FOSSMeet Events

This year, in order to introduce school children into the world of FOSS, FOSSCell NIT-C conducted an event called School FOSSMeet on February 18th. Students from over 10 schools around the campus had been invited for the event. More details regarding the event can be found here.

What to expect?

FOSSMeet will feature workshops, talks and discussions on a wide range of topics by established speakers in the FOSS arena. The hands-on sessions will orient you not just to develop using FOSS, but contribute to the same as well. Most importantly, FOSSMeet is a chance to meet like-minded people :-)

Registration is now closed.
