  • FOSS in Kerala – A case of inmates are running the asylum ? by Praseed Pai K.T.

    Free and Open Source Movement (FOSS) is a force to reckon with, in the modern Software Engineering world. The FOSS developers have created thousands of open source tools,libraries and applications which helps the software industry to ship their products. In Kerala , people who do not know much about software engineering are running the show and they are "irrittatingly assertive" about Free aspect of FOSS movement. This boils down to talks about Licensing , Philosophy and Advocacy. The presentation will talk about the state of the art as the presenter sees it (as of now). Then he will narrate about how relaxation of freedom component can bring wealth to our state. . The session also talk about how the presenter made some money and a change in career by bringing "dreaded" Windows programming knowlege into the GNU Linux operating system (Do not worry , i won’t show any source code !) . The other title of this talk would have been "how to make a living from FOSS ?" As Amitabh Bachan said in a movie , "Meim ye nehi jantha Woh acha hai , ye acha hai. Mujh jaise vyapari sabh ko apna lethe hai ".
