Yesterday Chennai Linux Users group and Tamil Nadu Science and Technology foundation jointly celebrated Software freedom day in chennai.

As part of it the following functions were organised at Birla Planatorium , kotturpuram, Chennai.
1. FOSS and Linux Demo Day
GNU/Linux and various Freesoftwares were shown to the public in about 10 PCs. This showed the power of Freesoftwares to the visited.
It should be noted that , for this program the Chennai Linux Users group volunteers have brought their own PCs for this event.

2. FOSS Training to 50 School Teachers
In this program school teachers were given briefing about GNU/Linux and other free softwares.
And the 11 std science sylabus about linux was also covered in this training.
I hope this program would have been very helpful to the teachers who attended.
