We, the people.

A session at Open Source Bridge 2013

  • Sucheta Ghoshal

Thursday 20th June, 2013

3:45pm to 4:30pm (PST)

We shall talk about, how, if we ever intend to call some coding session 'Hackathons' - We are encountered with questions from the participants like - if we would teach them to 'hack' their friend's Facebook Password.

It sure is unfortunate. But, does not always really have to be a sad story. We are from India. We contribute to Open Source. We call MediaWiki our community. But, trust us - It was not that easy! It is still not very easy for most of the people over here, and maybe, in many other places.
Let's talk about that!
The history. The past. The present. The future, how we want to see it.

We shall discuss about :
1. The problems - Society. The coding culture. We shall explain things as they are.

2. Our Story - We do have stories of how we got into communities and how much we love it!

3. Suggestions - Well, we may not be very important people to give others suggestions. But we could help. We are seeing people around, who needs to get a little help to get started. They think different. But they do need support and a little more courage.

We are by their side!
