Fosscell of our department conducted a hands on workshop on shell programming. It is quite usual to have a one day Introduction to FOSS for first year students.This time the idea of hands on workshop instead of usual talks was put forward. Congrats to Jain for this suggestion and to all those who together made it a memorable one.Though, it is more time consuming, the enthusiasm of the students to participate itself reveals that it is a more effective way. The audience really had the spirit and it was a fun to help them out.
