Home Sweet Home, Indian Linux Users Group, Chennai

After several months, Today attended ILUGC meeting.

Felt like being at hometown. Yes. ILUGC is where I born and  grown in Free Software world.

At todays meet, ShanthaKumar explained about Haskell and its testing methods. Haskell is a functional language. He is using genetic algorithms and AI to parse english text with a POS tagger.

Saai Akash from Jaya Enginneering College explained about Elastic Search Engine.

Both Shantha kumar and Saai are Final year engineering students. It is a good thing that students talk in tech communities.

Then Shakthi Kannan explored about Par Edit is an Emacs minor mode for editing S-expressions. He is living with Emacs. Inspired by regular talks and writings only I started to use Emacs and enjoying its benefits.

Saw three elder people attended the meet and asked good questions.

After long time, met Mohan, Stylesen, Joe Steve. The very long time ilugc friends.
As usual, the stand up meeting after the event was much informative. We went to a nearby canteen and had fun with food.

ILUGC is one of the oldest GNU/Linux users groups in the world. Yes. Indian Linux Users Group, Chennai [ ILUGC ] is spreading awareness on Free/Open Source Software (F/OSS) in Chennai since January 1998. We usually meet on the second Saturday of every month at IIT Madras, Aero space Engineering Building.

If you are in chennai on second saturdays, dont miss this meetings. You will learn tons of things and meet great people.

Thanks to all ILUGC friends for moving forward on building a great community for FOSS.
