Participation in the second edition of GNU/Linux Habba was huge. Close to 150 people turned up and the response was overwhelming. It was well above the capacity of the venue. I would have been much happier had the program been entirely in Kannada as was intended earlier. Our Mysore volunteers seemed to have a penchant for English (even in an event planned to be in Kannada) which took me by a little surprise.
GNU/Linux Habba will happen in Mysore this time on Sunday next week. I'm sure most of you might have read about it already or got an email or two regarding this. But registrations will be open only from Monday and we look forward to having fun installing GNU/Linux that day with all GNU/Linux fans, enthusiasts in Mysore! (If you too are in Mysore that day, do join in) Venue: University of Mysore, Gangothri, Mysore How do we Register?
GNU/Linux Habba now has a website of its own. Visit: habba.in We believe that a dedicated website for this event that logs the activity might inspire more events like this. We intend to share the space on the website and showcase any GNU/Linux installation festivals happening in the state of Karnataka. The photo gallery has been updated with photos of Volunteers meet held last week. The website would also be home for blogs by volunteers involved in the event, sharing their experience.
