A company that contributes to the open source community

Few days back, I met the http://FirstPlanet.in team at their office.

Wondered to know that they are into Blender, Pentaho BI, OpenBravo etc.

They provide custom solutions for the above free/open source software.

Even though they are mid range startup, they are very much interested in doing community activities for the students and freshers.

They conduct regular multi-day practical workshops on various technologies for free.

They provide space to conduct events for various groups too.

Recently, I handled a workshop on "Introduction to GNU/Linux"

Here are some glimpses.

I thank the FirstPlanet team for their contributions to the community.

It will be so nice, if more and more companies conduct such events and contribute back on anyway.
