Coimbatore Fedora Contribution Camp is a free event that offers students at Amrita University the opportunity to learn about the Fedora Project, find areas to contribute and make their first step towards approaching potential mentors within the community. Being a first-of-it's-kind in the area, it also serves as an experiment for similar future events.
