I am Aveek, an engineering student, currently pursuing my Graduation in the field of Electronics & Communication at NIT Agartala, India.
I first made headway into Linux in my eighth standard but could't properly do the partitioning. I started using Linux almost an year back when I entered the college. Then I went to NIT Durgapur's Linux fest Mukti & am using the insights gained there for further headway.
We have started our own LUG . The weblink is:http://groups.google.co.in/group/nitalug.

Activities with Fedora
- I try to spread Fedora awareness in my college

- I plan to bring Fedora into my home town and surrounding areas by popularizing it among my friends at BIT Mesra & other local colleges
- I also plan to introduce it in my school at Calcutta-St. Paul's Mission
- I want to deploy Fedora in schools and general colleges and provide support so that it can be used in quality education
- We had a mega Linux fest at our college on 18-19 July. It will consist of an install fest, talks & workshops. Shakthi Kannan(mbuf) gave a presentaion on introductory guidelines, Embedded systems, git, FEL & organised the FAD. For details please see the Fedora events page & our LUG's Google group.
