GeekMeetupD #Delhi

Yesterday I have gone to the JNU‘s LUG cum Python NCR cum *unofficial* GSoC 2011 Delhi Meetup cum LUG@IITD‘s GeekMeetup which is being organized thanks to some great planning from Satya and Dr. Andrew Sir. The venue for the meetup was JNU and a great arrangement is being done by the JNU guys.The general agenda of the meetup was following ( taken from the wiki of LUG@IITD ) :


  1. Big Number of GSOC students have made to this years programme on GSOC , so lets celebrate that with recording interviews and sharing with wider world outside.
  2. GSOC students can present there project ideas short five minutes talks.
  3. In the Last NCR Python meetup Debyan again mentioned about why the regular yearly big event is not happening in North region , i think this is the apt time and place to fan this thought process and know from all stakeholders, here is some background about what has happened so far with respect to event in Delhi
  4. Pythonistas agenda to talk about and get larger audience to the event in Pune

If you want to talk on a topic please update the vacant space above. Installations of Linux Distros is available – come with laptop, we will install GNU/Linux.

I started from my home at around 9:30 AM as the venue is just 15 KM from my home but I made some huge assumption while doing that 9:30 AM calculation and that also showed off. We (Sheel Sindhu Manohar) and me reached venue at around 11:20 AM after walking around 5 KM 🙂 at around 45 Degree Celsius and guess what Sheel Sindhu lost the sole of his shoes :D. When we arrived at the venue Satya was having a general discussion. Then all the GSoC students present their have given a small talk or a small discussion to be honest about their project and off course being a laziest guy in the world I don’t even remember their blog or even projects for which I can give URL here 🙁 .Then Narendra given a presentation on Slidecast ( An improved S5 version ) . After that we have a break for around 60+ minutes. After this Akshat shown a cool demo of the HTML5 based game with a deep inside the code. Then came the big and most important discussion about *FREED 2012* by Dr. Andrew Sir .

After that we have a random session about *anything* you want to have.
