FSMK is organising Free Software Orientation Camp (aka Hacktivist Camp) for this year on 19th - 22nd July 2018 in Beary’s Institute of Technology, Mangalore. This camp’s main focus would be to enable people of varied interest to get up and contribute to various free software/hardware/knowledge projects and also help people learn various organizational and leadership skills to make every glug move to a next level. This camp will also be focusing on building the next 1 year plan for each glug and its activities thus paving way for FSMK as an organization.
The camp is not going to be a technical camp, which means we wont be focusing on teaching any programming languages or hardware stuff etc, but rather focus on the philosophies and contribution to various projects. We are also inviting speakers from various free software movements across the country who will be spending a lot of time with us
And as always this is a residential camp, and to cover the basic expenses of food and stay, the registration fee for this camp would be 500/- INR .
Topics for this camp would include , Open Data and Open Access, Digital Security and CryptoParty, Society and Technology, Exploring Science and more.
To register for this camp please contact your glug co-ordinator. In-case if you are not a part of any glug and still want to attend, please do write to us at one of these email id’s
Please note that registration is limited to only 10 people per glug as we are having quite a few glug’s to reach out to. This camp is primarily focused on people who have organizational/ philosophical interest towards free software movements and whoever is willing / are going to take up various responsibilities in GLUG’s or FSMK in the upcoming days
The registration for this camp will end on 7 July 2018, and whatever the list each glug co-ordinator gives will be final.
The detailed syllabus for the camp will come out based on the registered numbers and we need the right set of activities to be planned.
Signing off for now. Hoping to see you all soon.
