Ramblings on Fossconf Chennai'08

Went to Chennai to attend my second FOSS conference. Though Fossconf 08 did not live up to my expectations, it was a perfect conference for first time speakers and absolute newbies who had no idea of what Foss was. I was really impressed by the project showcase. 10 engineering colleges from all over Tamil Nadu showcased their projects.

One thing that I could observe was that the ILUGC members worked perfectly hand in hand with NRCFOSS folks and did a beautiful job. I haven't seen such a wonderful community anywhere. I guess the ILUGHyd folks need to learn from them.

On the whole I would give the conference a 3/5 rating. The next year I am sure Fossconf will be better organized and the common man will still not be disappointed.
