Foss Projects for Students

This is project time for college students. B.E, M.C.A, B.C.A students will be searching for projects.

Mostly they all do or buy some project and throw away. But yearly more than 50,000 students come out from tamil nadu itself.

We have to change the studnts projects into FOSS contribution.

There are tons of FOSS software which needs contribution.

Normally, a student spends 6 months for a project.
6 months is a neat period for study and improve any FOSS project.

We have to make a list of required applications for linux and guide the students to
start them. sooner the community will join with them and the contribution will rock.

To do list:

1. create awareness to students about contribution
2. teach them about sourceforge and urge them to release their project in it.
3. create a list of required applications
4. create a list of mentors
5. bridge the mentors and students.

How to start this?
Give your ideas.

  1. Hi

    I am a third year student in IT-BHU, Varanasi.

    I am quite interested in FOSS, and I believe I can help spread word about it in my college…

    I humbly request you to please provide me the following:
    1. A text tutorial on how to use Sourceforge (initiating and joining projects)
    2. A suggestive list of projects in which student contribution will be helpful.

    You can reach me at harshath DOT jr AT gmail DOT com
