Organizing events and install fests is just fine, but I am curious to<br>
know how many of you attending the DGPLUG workshop will actually turn<br>
into _regular__contributors_ to free software projects? Will you?</blockquote><div> </div></div>I'm already into development.

The DGPLUG workshop is an add-on for me this summer. I'm quite aware of many things that are part of this training. But yes, there also are many things I was unaware of. One step leads to another; when I came acrosss this IRC-based workshop, I got two of my friends also to join in. I consider this also as contribution. As you can see, for me, contribution is not restricted only to coding.<br>
Well, this has put me to think: Is promoting Open Source in any form or through any kind of event not counted as contribution to the community?<br>Would love to read your thoughts.<br><br>Cheers!<br>-- <br>Prakhar Agarwal<br>
