FStival

FStival is a Free Software Festival conducted annually, since 2004, by GLUGOT and GLUG-Madurai in commemoration of Software Freedom Day (SFD). The objective of FStival is to create awareness of Free Open Source Software (FOSS) among the general public of South TamilNadu. Over the years FStival has been a venue where students of various age groups and domains, professionals (of both IT and non-IT fields), enthusiasts and the curious have come together to get introduced to FOSS, interact with each other and share their experiences. Every year, the participants bring in empty CD/DVDs to copy Free Software of their choice from the exhaustive repository at Thiagarajar College of Engineering (maintained by GLUGOT). We will have many stalls in which various Free Software tools are demonstrated.

Software Freedom Day (SFD) is a worldwide celebration (since 2004) of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). The goal is to educate the worldwide public about the benefits of using high quality FOSS in education, in government, at home and in business -- in short, everywhere.
