For last 10 days, I was pretty busy attending and arranging FOSS events in Durgapur. One of them that I got the chance to attend was Mukti ’13, the annual national level technical symposium on Free and Open Source Software of the GNU/Linux Users’ Group NIT Durgapur held from 2nd-5th February 2013. Just like last year, this year’s Mukti was also filled with fun and frolic. There were lots of events like Codecraker, Lipi, Hack the Code etc. Students and Foss enthusiast from in and around Durgapur come to this four day festival.
On the first day, Chandan and I reached at NIT Durgapur around 2pm to attend the Python Workshop by Kushal Das. I was glad to see a lot of first years came to attend the workshop by bunking their college classes. A lot of second year also came out to attend the workshop along with Souradeep, Apoorv, Zubin. After the workshop Kushal da took us to a nearby restaurant for dinner 🙂
We stayed up at NIT hostel for the night. The very next day, the Python Workshop began at 2pm and Kushal da covered the rest of the topics along with some questions. At the end of the day, we took some snaps and returned back to our college. We thought of attending the MediaWiki workshop but it got cancelled last minute.
But, as always it was a great time, meeting with FOSSy people during Mukti. I really applaud to all those who have put their hard work,labour and time to make this event a huge success and hope that MUKTI 2014 would be even bigger, greater than this year.
