It was a great opportunity to visit Amrita University (AU),Kollam and AU FOSS coordinator Mr.Vipin. Joerg, thanks for sharing AU FOSS club details. Though we didn't conduct any formal FOSS meeting during this visit, I got a chance to talk with students. Some expressed their interest in open source, few are already in touch with devel community of respective project they are interested in.

I have handed over the stickers, FUDCon posters ( Thanks to FUDCon team, Pune for the support ) and F21 Workstation DVD ( Rejy, thanks ) to Vipin for giveaway. He was so kind to arrange the DVD distribution during tea break and informed that there are students attending FUDCon Pune-2015.

Post lunch I got an installation request from a student who is new to Fedora/Linux. Vipin agreed to host Fedora22 release party in AU,Kollam once the exams are over in May2015. I will be in touch with Vipin for further followup.

There is kde.conf happening in Amrita University (17-18 Apr) [0], If
someone going to Kerala this timeframe can showcase fedora KDE spin
and also have discussion about creating a community because most of
FOSS enthusiastic speaker/attendee should be there and I think we can
use this opportunity.
