GSoC 2011 and FOSS

It was really nice to meet many interested students in today's session at Science Education Theater (SET) of University of Peradeniya, hosted by the Computer Society of Science Faculty, UoP. Special thanks to 07CSE who made everything possible within a very short time frame.

We created the gsoc-srilanka group with the goal of "Promoting FOSS through GSoC among Sri Lankan Universities, hence doubling/increasing the Sri Lankans' presence in GSoC and FOSS altogether," a year ago. Now we have started spreading the word in real; not promoting merely online. Hence I feel that today is an important day towards achieving the goal. We are in the correct path, I am pretty confident. Keep the word spreading.

The presentation slides Can be found here.
This is basically the same presentation that I prepared for the IESL GSoC Session, along with some further improvements/additions.

Update: Pls find the latest revised version of this presentation at
