The students were given an idea about the open source concept and how it expands the boundaries of creation.
The session began with a brief talk about free software. It was carried on by giving an overview of what is Debian and how it is different from other operating systems, and thereby gave an idea about installation of Debian. The workshop saw many enthusiastic students who wished to take their ideas further about the concept and learn many other skills. The installation of Debian, though was a tad difficult to understand for juniors, was understood clearly.
