Yesterday, ie., 25-november-2009 I was in Jaya Engineering College where I gave a talk on "CVS - patch - diff" as a part of Faculty Development Program (FDP). Mr. Senthil Anand from NRCFOSS accompanied me, who spoke on gcc, java and build tools. There were around 50 participants for these sessions. FOSSee (http://fossee.in/) in association with ILUGC (http://www.ilugc.in/) and Jaya Engineering College (http://www.jayafossclub.org) is conducting a five day workshop for faculties from various colleges in and around Chennai (northern zone of TamilNadu) on the Free Software syllabus introduced in Anna University (http://www.annauniv.edu/) affiliated colleges. I was invited by Jaya Engineering College, Computer Science HOD Mr. Ma. Kumaran, to handle sessions on this workshop. I chose to speak on CVS, patch and diff utils. More info here http://jayafossclub.org//index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=112&Itemid=59 It was a refreshing talk for me and also hope it was the same for the audience too :) I started the talk at 12:15pm and finished at 01:15pm. In the afternoon we had practical session were participants tried working with CVS, patch, diff. I have the same topics + web servers to cover next week (02-december-2009) in Thiagarajar College of Engineering, for the above program for colleges in the south zone of TamilNadu. PS: The syllabus has CVS to be thought to students which I really pity. People who are responsible for framing/revising the syllabus should see that they introduce subversion in the syllabus (which I stressed in my talk too :) ).
