Open Source Evangelization and the evolution of the GSoC introductory presentation

Open Source Evangelization
We decided to use Google Summer of Code, as a mean to evangelize open source among the university students. I have been contributing to this evangelization effort this year. On this, I have prepared a presentation and presented at the [1] Institute of Engineers, Sri Lanka (IESL), [2] the Science Faculty of the University of Peradeniya, and [4] the Engineering Faculty of the University of Peradeniya. We have also scheduled a session at [5] the Science Faculty, the University of Jaffna, the 7th of January, 2012.

The evolution of the presentation can be found at the respective blog posts.
[1] GSoC-2011 [35 slides / IESL. First version - 40 minutes]
[2] GSoC 2011 and FOSS [38 slides / SET - UoP - 75 minutes]
[3] AbiWord and Google Summer of Code - 2011 [35 slides / AbiWord Specific - 75 minutes (estimated)]
[4] Google Summer of Code awareness session [42 slides / E-Fac - UoP - 75 minutes]
[5] Google Summer of Code 2012 [45 Slides / Further improved. Final / Global version - 75 minutes (estimated)]

It is interesting to find the growth of the GSoC presentation over the year. Hope my GCI presentation [28 slides / First Version - 50 minutes (estimated)] too will eventually become a presentation with a similar quality.
