Gave a talk on Introduction to Free Software

Yesterday, I gave a talk on “Introduction to Free Software”
at http://www.FirstPlanet.in (opposite to LIC building, Mount Road, Chennai)

Around 20 freshers attended the session.

I explored the following stuff.

GNU/Linux History
Free Software Philosophies
Ubuntu Linux Installation
Partitioning tips
Alternate applications
Introduction to Commandline
Installing applications
Intro to ILUGC

They are organising these kind of workshops/session regularly for fresher.

Wondered to know that their main business is to provide support, customizations for
the open source enterprise applications
compiere, http://www.compiere.com
openbravo, http://www.openbravo.com
pentaho http://community.pentaho.com

for around 4 years.

They are interested in ILUGC activities and they are happy to provide place for any events.

Already they host the java user groups meeting and chennai astronomy group meetings.

I invited the CTO to give a talk at ILUGC meet on running business with open source software.

I thank for the firstplanet.in team for their great services.
