NRCFOSS Workshop at GEC Trichur

NRCFOSS is an organization working towards spreading FOSS awareness/usage in our country. A workshop was conducted at GEC Trichur yesterday by Dr.C.N Krishnan (of NRCFOSS) to discuss the issue of promoting Free/Open Source Software in the technical education sector. Two strategies were explored - one, to include FOSS electives in the engineering curriculum and two, to structure the existing labs around Free Software tools. Both should be possible - positive results are expected by the beginning of next year.
