Re: Workshop about Linux in Dharan, Nepal -- Help! wanted

Dear Tushar,
       So as I guess, you are organising an orientation programme cum workshop that will make the target audience aware of GNU/Linux and FOSS, and provide them a brief insight of how to use them, isn't it?
        Can you send a brief detail of how are you structuring the programme? Meanwhile the target of 1000 audience doesn't seem feasible; how can you manage them with just 30 volunteers. You need to prepare a lot.
       Well, regarding the contents, you can use some of the marketing slides of Fedora which you can find at .... I'll also suggest you to use some of the RedHat Videos like "Truth Happens", "We are here" etc. You can include some materials like "FOSS for Education" (refer to IOSN FOSS Primer for more such materials), "How can FOSS help to create secure and low cost ICT infrastructures?" (refer to the RedHat's Cost Cutter Video for reference). You can also include a Install Fest, which will enable your target audience to get Linux (preferably Fedora) installed on their PC/Laptop. Moreover, providing Live CDs would have been a good option, but the number of audience is a great barrier here.

Well after 27th July, I'll be free and would be able to help you more. Keep in touch.

Dear ambassadors,

I am conducting a three day workshop in BPKIHS, Dharan, this is a medical university and I hope that at least a 1000 people will attend.

To make this opportunity an event of a lifetime and utilize it to motive many to use Linux is my prime goal.

Can anyone contribute to the materials that are needed to be discussed in the workshop.
The things that should not be missed and anything special that can be done economically and easily to motive people.

The tentative date of starting is August 20. (Date still flexible)

We can support:
1. Hall for workshop.
2. Some computers (Not all can get one! limitation due to the crowd)
3. We also have a small set of volunteers (Count: 30)
4. Other supports are still to come....

Hoping to get some support,

Best Regards,
