Hi all,

In our previous APAC ambassadors meeting we were discussing about this idea[1].

Generally the final/pre-final year engineering students need to do
some project work on a topic.
What I personally saw that they desperately search for one.

we can make a lot of  new contributors if we provide them with a
project to work, some guidence
and may be a certificate at the end. (As they say, target this segment :))

This way we can make much more widespread effect as the student
partners themselves will spread Fedora within their peers and their

Also we may talk about officially tie-up with some colleges.

The basic idea is here[2].

Now the question id if this is worth taking up.
If yes, lets refine it here.
