Velalar Python workshopLast weekend ie., 18 July 2010 from 09:45 to 12:45 HRS IST, I conducted "Basics of Python Programming" workshop in Velalar College of Engineering and Technology, Thindal, Erode which was organized by Free Software Foundation, TamilNadu chapter. I explained basics of python programming language and the advantages of using python over other languages, with some code demo.

We had audience from various colleges in and around Erode. The session was interactive and I enjoyed a lot with the questions from the audience.

Thanks to Ravi Jaya and others who gave me an opportunity to conduct this workshop. It was great to meet LinuXpert Systems CEO Mr. Baskar, with whom I discussed a lot about Free Software usage in education. My special thanks to the Head of IT department at Velalar College who was present throughout all the sessions and interacting with the speakers with his great questions.
