First GLUG meet 2013-2014

Dated:  2/8/2013

It was Friday afternoon when we decided to have our first GLUG(GNU Linux Users Group) meet for the year 2013-2014. The main agenda was to unite all our GLUG members and discuss about the upcoming events for the year.

The meet started by discussing about the commencement of the events to be held in our college in the month of September and October. We decided to celebrate free software day in September by conducting a two day workshop in Python programming language, followed by the Byte Struct event in the month of October.

This time we are extending our GLUG activity by helping the students in the community, which was proposed by our new GLUG member Ruhia (3sem EC) who is a member of MAD (Make A Difference) MAD is a non-profit organization which helps under privileged students learn. Ruhia was helping these kids learn English. We under the name of GLUG Mangalore decided to help them learn computers and guide them use open source software, so we decided to free ourselves on weekends and take part in this activity.
