The first talk was given by Kushal Das, Director of PSF. It wasn’t a technical talk. He spoke about his life journey from the time of his middle school to director of PSF. It was inspirational as he was introduced to world of linux a bit late in his life.(2004)

Short break โ€“ had coffee with biscuits and met my friends who had a stall for โ€œFree Software Movement Karnatakaโ€ organisation, promoting about Free and Open source softwares. They were even talking about the โ€œGoonda Actโ€ with the people. Even I was helping them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

During this break, I met many people form different part of the country. It was very nice to hang out with them. ๐Ÿ™‚

[10:45 a.m]

There were 2 sessions going on parallel at 2 different auditoriums. One was on Python, the eyes of real world computer applications and other was Python + Spark: Lightining Fast Cluster Copmputing. I decided to go for Python, the eyes of real world computer applications. Well, it was really intresting. ๐Ÿ™‚ It was based on image processing along with python scripts. They demonstrated to play a famous android game โ€œflappy birdโ€ with gesture. That was really cool. ๐Ÿ™‚
