The world celebrated the Software Freedom Day on 15th September 2007. We had some 100+ countries and more than 300 groups covering the free software world in different form of activities, presentations and events. The webmasters of FAST-NU Karachi also organized an event and talk series on the day and I felt really honored and delighted when I got an invitation to speak before the undergraduates of what open source is and how it is used in the industry.
I chose the topic “Open Source in the enterprise” picking up the best open source projects I use frequently and have known to be used as solid, industry standard applications in different domains. It was a wonderful experience going back to my university and meeting with a bunch of brilliant future computer scientists.
The slides of the presentation can be found here.
