[Ambassadors] Final Details for Kalyani Govt. Engineering Collg. Install Fest and FAD

   This is regarding the install fest and FAD at KGEC. The organizers have arranged everything that we wanted. They have changed the venue to their LAB where we will get
2 MBps internet connectivity. They have also managed to get funds in just 2 days and are arranging for food packets for everybody including the participants. There is no participation fee for the event. Participation well over 100 is expected. The FAD starts at 11:00 a.m and continues till the evening with a break in between. The agenda is upon us to decide.

   Its an install fest cum FAD. So will definitely need all the help we can get to man the booth in the morning and help out in the workshops as well.
Bring whatever slides you can. Will decide what exactly to do. The agenda I was thinking is

 1> Introduction to Linux and Fedora (Arindam's slides)
 2> Installation(using DVD) and configuration( probably using a local mirror)
 3> Talk on Myths about Linux busted with Fedora (Subodip's slideshow)
 4> A demo and workshop on the various softwares and utilities.
 5> Talk on how to contribute to FOSS and how to join Fedora ( Possibly using Satya's slides)

   The speakers are yet to be decided. All I know is that Debayan, Ratnadeep, Kishan Goyal and me along with Indranil da are attending the event. Don't know about Dipanjan or Sarbartha. hey haven't confirmed yet. I want Indranil da to say something. Will talk to him tomorrow. Suggest anything, any change or any addition, you want. Remember, the agenda for the event isn't final yet. Anyone who wants to speak on anything else please let me know. I will be needing 100 DVDs. Anyone who has it please supply.
