GNUnify'09 is here

But many of you may ask : What is "GNUnify" in the first place.
Well, here is your answer.

GNUnify is an annual technical extravaganza organised by the students of Symbiosis Institute of Computer Studies and Research (SICSR) in association with the Pune GNU/Linux Users Group (PLUG).

It provides a platform for students, IT professionals and Academia to exchange ideas and discuss the philosophies behind the Free & Open Source Software(FOSS) movement.
It helps strenghtening the FOSS movement and spreads the knowledge of FOSS among people who may not be aware of it.
GNUnify kicked off in 2003 and has since then grown to become on of the leading FOSS events in the calendar year. It brings together some of the world's leading speakers to share their knowledge and experience, with students and developers.
It provides a common forum to unite open minds.

GNUnify consists of the following exciting events -

These sessions bring the who's who in FOSS technologies face to face with the FOSS community. We get to hear the gurus of the industry speak in the series of lectures conducted on different topics running in parallel tracks.

Its an interactive session in which individual demonstrations are carried out to help the newbie to have a closer look at the functionality and working of the FOSS world by a hands on approach.
install fest, workshops, Q&A panel, programming contest etc.

It provides hands on experience in the installation of several flavors of GNU/Linux. One can get to know about the various technicalities of installation and configuration. Several IT facilitators are always at hand to help in case of doubts.

Being the most exciting of the events, brings down all the experts to the same stage where they start from nothing and meander their way through everything. It is an informal meet up without any pre planned agenda.

In the end the aim of GNUnify each year is to share the vast amount of knowledge of FREE/Open Source Software with everybody and not with a previleged few

As GNUnify enters its 7th year it continues to strive to fulfill its vision of spreading the awareness about the FOSS movement. All in all GNUnify is an experience by itself. You have to be a part of it to feel it!! It's your presence and our pleasure.
