Mukti is the annual FOSS festival organised by the GNU/Linux Users Group of NIT Durgapur. Mukti 2011 was held on 4-6th Feb. 2011.There were lots of events like Codecraker,BrainMesh,Konfigure,FreePL etc.Students and Foss enthusiast from in and around Durgapur come to this three day festival.
The first day started with the lighting of the lamp after which Director of NIT Durgapur along with few other professor of the college,Mr.Rahul Sundaram,Mr. Kushal Das and Mr.Shreyank Gupta addressed the audience and enlighted us with their words.
After hanging around a bit and talking to kushal for the first time mrityunjay, chandankumar, rtnpro, kishan, bamachrn,yevlempy,meejan and myself proceeded to attend the RPM packaging workshop by Rahul Sundaram.In thee workshop we were taught to make a dummy rpm(hello).The workshop was wonderful and all my doubts regarding RPM packaging was cleared.
I could not attend the second day due to some problems.
The third day arrived a bit late to kushal’s System Programming with Python Workshop.Although i attended only two of the worshop but it was a great time meeting FOSSy people(as said by kishan) especially mether,Shrink,kushal.
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 2012 would be even bigger
