What is Release Party???
As the name implies, it is a party/get-together to promote or release something.
On 21st of December 2014, we had a release party for Fedora21 at +Homi Bhabha Centre For Science Education. It was again one of the awesomely arranged software release party. The session began at half past two with a quick introduction of all enthusiasts present. There were participants from various organisations like IIT Bombay, Red Hat & C-DAC Pune.
The introduction to Fedora21 was presented by Pravin Satpute.
- user support,
- testing and usability,
- and many other contributions and interests.
Lastly, there was openhouse, a kindof group discussion where we discussed about difference between Free Software, OSS and FOSS.
- The freedom to run the program as you wish
- The freedom to study and change it as you wish
- The freedom to redistribute copies to help
- The freedom to distribute copies of your modified versions to others
We shell out so much on servers which scrapes our personal information. Instead it is very cheap to host and manage our own servers. Read about FreedomBox.
After the discussion, a group photo was captured and they gave away goodies like Fedora21 stickers, workstation and server DVDS and Red Hat keychains.
