Tamilnadu witnessed it second major Conference at Thiyagarajar College
of Engineering, Madurai between Feb 27 and March 01. The conference
was divided into three categories - Stalls, Project Demos and Talks.

I was there for the second day, while Padmanathan had taken the
responsibility of taking care the stall we had under Ubuntu Tamil
Team/ Yavarkkum for the entire conference period. We demonstrated
Tamil Language features available with Fedora/ Ubuntu for visitors.

Fedora DVDs were distributed for participants, most of whom were
school students. Thanks to the Fedora India Community/ Rahul for
sending the DVDs in time. The students from TVS schools exhibited
great enthusiasm in explaining their work. GCC, Blender, Shell
Scripting, Gimp were among various topics covered by these young kids.

Prizes were given Best Project, Talk and Stalls. A short trip for me
but a memorable one.
