Ankura, a three day tech workshop at NIE, Mysore was organized by a local student chapter of IEEE and the students of NIE. IBM, one of the silver sponsors, received a 3 hr slot to conduct a tech workshop. A manager in ISL, an alumni of NIE, along with IBM India's University Relations team, was co-ordinating the IBM's event. The event was scheduled to start at 10AM, and we had to start from Bangalore early in the morning at around 5:45AM - 6AM. Mysore, is a three hour drive from Banaglore and with the recent four laning of the road, it was a very smooth drive.
I got another chance to spread the benefits of building Open skills and how one can contribute to open source projects. The title of my talk was What OPEN means to YOU!.
