Freedom Bootcamp 2015

The following invitation is prepared by Mugunthan, a free software activist at FSFTN.

As a part of our FTW(FSFTN Tech Weekends) initiative, we are organising a Hackathon/Bootcamp on the the 15th of august for college students and general public .

Well, Independence day is just a co-incidence!

In this one day event, we will be having 3 parallel tracks running at the same time:

Ruby On Rails, Blender and Wikipedia.

The participants in each track would collaborate with each other and Brain-Storm together to Hack on a real-time project, which will, of course be a Free Software.

Each of the 3 tracks would be assigned with one or more mentors from that respective fields/communities, who would guide them through and beyond the Hackathon.

  1. Blender: Basic Knowledge on working with Blender. Love for art <3 and Patience (This is must!)
  1. Wikipedia: No technical prerequisites.Just need to have/create a Wikipedia account.
