Sorry for late notice, having this BoF at Gnunify, if you are around
GILT is an acronym for Globalization Internationalization Localization
Technology, it encompasses a broad range of topics, which impact how
products can be made available to a global audience & market. Without
applying it, it is not possible for a product to have a wide reach,
beyond the originating geography and language. GILT applies not just
to software domain but to all products which are manufatured and sold,
marketed, along with knowledge itself which available in one language
only needs to be made available to many.
At FUEL-GILT conference 2014
), a proposal was put forward
by Harshad Gune (SICSR) and Karunakar (IndLinux) to create a
curriculum around GILT, since any new entrants to it always have a
learning barrier. Acquiring full GILT knowledge requires learning and
and training, for which at least in India no formal course exists.
As an extension to the proposal, at Gnunify we intend to have a BoF
session for interested participants, to discuss and take the idea
forward, with next steps being identifying formal courses which can
have a GILT angle or special course for GIILT. Also plan to do a short
summer school on GILT to test the waters for demand for such
