FOSS 2014

10/13/2014 08:00
10/14/2014 18:00

The first official workshop of Free and Open Source Software — FOSS group was organized on 13th and 14th of October. The first day of the workshop was held at Biotech Seminar Hall (Bio-Engineering Block) and the second day of the workshop was held at ECE Seminar Hall (Tech Park). The workshop was initiated by a welcome address by HoD of CSE department, Dr. E. Poovammal, followed by, her introduction of the Chief Guest and Speaker of the first session, Mr. K Lavakumar.

Mr. Lavakumar, Author of Asia’s Biggest Open-Source Security Project —IronWasp, started with a presidential address and followed it with the first session of the workshop.

Mr. Lavakumar introduced the gathering, marked by the presence of students and faculties, to the world of Open Source and its application, progress and impact on Information Security sector. He began explaining how he switched his interest to the fields of Computer Science, his first experience with real-time programming using Perl and how he got inspired by the work and contributions of Open Source Communities. He explained how he entered the Information Security sector through Null meetups and other groups. Mr. Lavakumar further discussed the importance of Information Security at Industries, showcasing few examples of vulnerabilities in sectors like Banking and Health, to name a few. 

He later discussed about the IronWasp project, which is currently Asia’s biggest open source project and how he inspired numerous developers to contribute towards the project by building various plugins over the IronWasp framework developed him. Mr. Lavakumar later addressed various doubts raised by the audience which ranged from topics like how to develop a rigorous application-coding practise, how to join OpenSource projects like GSoC(Google Summer of Code) and how to learn and contribute towards his Security project.

The audience dispersed for lunch break before coming back for the second session to be handled by Ms. Prathibha, Senior Engineer from C-DAC Chennai.

Ms. Prathibha, a Senior Engineer from C-DAC Chennai and NRCFOSS, addressed the second session of the workshop. She introduced the world of Linux and Bash to the audience. Ms. Prathibha started her explanation with basic architecture of Linux OS, its kernels, the file system structure and the working and communication of various basic modules with the main kernel. She went on to teach the audience the basic Linux commands like file listing, copying and moving of files, checking system usage etc. and these commands were demonstrated on the BOSS operating system, developed by C-DAC that supports all major Indian languages.

The session went into more depth as she introduced a very important and complex topic of Bash scripting. Later, she cleared doubts related to good practices in file partitioning and server setup. Ms. Prathibha invited the students to contribute to projects happening at C-DAC and NRCFOSS.

After a short tea break, third session of Day 1 commenced. The third session was handled by Mr. Ankit Pansari, Alumni and Manager of SRM Incubation Cell. Mr. Ankit Pansari introduced the audience to Open Hardware, especially Raspberry Pi — a micro processor that is being widely used in many industrial applications recently. Mr. Ankit discussed about various Open Hardware tools currently popular like Arduino, Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone. He stressed upon how they are being increasingly used in Industrial applications, especially during prototyping phase, as the Open Source packages and tools help build applications on these hardware quickly without much initial capital or resources. He further explained the importance of Raspberry Pi by displaying its usage in his 3D Printer. Mr. Ankit also explained our students and faculties the process involved in project planning and applying for Incubation Cell support. 

After the end of third session, the organizers of the workshop, Sukesh Reddy and Shashank (4th year, CSE) ensured that all the attendees of the first day received the “Ruby on Rails” installation CDs and have it installed on their workstations so as to enable the smooth functioning of the second day of the Workshop.

As stated earlier, the second day of the workshop was held at ECE Seminar Hall, Tech Park. The whole second day of the workshop involved a hands-on session on “Ruby on Rails”, handled by Mr. Murtuza Kutub and Mr. Hari, Partners at F22 Labs. Mr. Murtuza, former employee at Zynga and Fab and Mr. Hari, who previously developed an operating system for surface computing: Emo2, were experts in the field of Ruby. They believed that for converting our ideas to a fully- implementable project, one should be well versed in scripting language like Ruby, an Open Source scripting language.

Mr. Murtuza started with the theoretical knowledge required to understand the working of Ruby. He then delved into the basic commands and syntax of Ruby, simultaneously engaging students by giving small, captivating exercises. Mr. Murtuza and Mr. Hari also discussed the nuances in starting up a company and invited them to come up new and exciting ideas, promising to help them in any way possible. The second half of the day was about the Rails framework on Ruby platform. Mr. Murtuza explained how an application is structured when it is developed using Ruby on Rails. 

The last session of the two day workshop was handled by the convener of the Workshop, Mr. Karthick Nanmaran, Research Associate at the department with a brief talk on the various FOSS Projects being undertaken at the Software Defined Communications Technology / Research Testbed of which he’s a part of. He listed and explained the projects available under him and welcomed the students to get involved in the projects. Dr. B Amutha concluded the two-day workshop with a closing address and presented the speakers with a memento as a token of gratitude.

Overall, the workshop has been received well by the students and the faculties as well. Although the registrations were over 60, the average attendees over the two days were around 30 due to the fact that many of the students had lab practical exams during those two days. Apart from small issues like WiFi connectivity and Ruby on Rails setup problems on the second day, the workshop, as a whole, had been good and could be deemed as a successful start to FOSS group. The speakers were impressed with the response from our university towards Open Source development and were very keen to help us start with few great open source ideas and projects and also collaborate with us in the near future.

The first FOSS workshop could act as a good base for the students to delve more into actual Open Source developments and soon start contributing towards Open Source projects. This would really contribute in the making of future workshops.

02/13/2015

In today’s environment of data abundance of frequent data overload, the ability to discover unique insight enables organizations to improve decision making, resulting in the ability to take advantage of opportunities, minimize risks, and control costs. Data science not only considers managing diverse data but also asking new questions, formulating new hypotheses, exploration and discovery, and making data driven decisions. Predominantly, business analytics efforts are the use of new statistical techniques on either new data or data that has been combined in new ways.
