Sponsor Event: Mahiti.org

Convene is the key project and hacking is better, how postgrey is better than Oracle…Applied Engg and pure Engg, Conducting FOSS Workshops and TTP

There are three main categories of workshops.
1.Source Camps :
Source Camps are week-long workshops that focus on the use of free and open source software (FOSS) in the non-profit sector. They create opportunities for practical learning and skills exchange. An emphasis on community building, which runs through everything from content design and delivery to the agenda and location, makes Source Camps an unforgettable experience. The relationships created during the workshops last long beyond the week of the Camp.

2.General Workshops:
These are generally 2 -3 day workshops where the selected participantsi would like to gain an insight into open source and use this knowledge in migration.Some of these participants might be already familiar with open source but would like more information about the topics being covered.

3.Custom Workshops :
These are special workshops custom made for customers on request.These organizations had either attended our source camps or non-residential workshops and would like to effectively deploy open source technologies at the workplace more effectively.One example would be the custom training programmes we conduct at the Centre for Women’s Development and Research. ( www.cwdr.org.in ) ,These have been highly effective in helping the organization migrate effortlessly from proprietary tools to open source.We did the migration ourselves and trained the staff on use of the tools effectively.

Topics which can be requested for these workshops could be anything from Linux OS to alternatives to MS Office and Outlook.Video and audio editing tools are also covered on request.

Please contact us with your requirements and we would be glad to assist you.
