GSoC-2012 (The Second Life)


Today we had a Google Summer of Code (GSoC) meetup at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Moratuwa, 9 am - 3 pm, with multiple presentations and demos. This was the second time I presented the GSoC for the CSE, UoM undergraduates. However, last year the session was held at the IESL auditorium. Hence this year's session was important to all the resource persons, as doing the session at our own department for the very first time. The juniors showed a great enthusiasm, and I am confident that today's session was the best of all the sessions we had so far. 150 heads was recorded as the highest in our GSoC sessions history in today's session.

My GSoC presentation (given above), which went for 80 mins, was themed "The Second Life." We were informed the list of the selected organizations at 12.30 a.m (IST) today, and we had the session at 09.00 a.m. This gave an additional motivation to the students. Not forgetting to update, AbiWord has been selected as a mentoring organization this year as well. I hope to mentor for AbiWord once more.

In a slow network, it may take ages to properly load and display the presentation above. Feel free to download the presentation, in that case.
