I was recently invited to give a presentation to the FOSSMeet 2008 conference at the National Institute of Technology Calicut. The conference is happening this weekend, and looking at the user list for their site, I see a number of our contributors there, including Kushal Das and Tejas Dinkar.
The organizers and I tested the videoconferencing link this morning using Ekiga and had no trouble. Unfortunately, that may have been because in part I was trying this weekend to connect to them using Fedora’s Rawhide version of Ekiga, which is… problematic. Fedora 8 had no problem this morning so the speech can commence next Saturday morning (for India, Saturday evening).
Thank you to the FOSSMeet organizers for graciously inviting me to talk to their attendees about Fedora. I’m looking forward to my first speech by teleconference!
There’s more. I guess Ani Peter who maintains the Malayalam locale (ml_IN) for Fedora and other projects is going to be around as well 🙂 It is a fun place to be…perhaps you should chalk it down as a potential visit. After all, it is God’s Own Country.
