FOSS-ed On Wheels Ratnapura @ Ruwanpura National Collage of Education (RNCOE)

FOSS.lk held a Training program for teachers and students of the Ratnapura District at Ruwanpura National Collage of Education (RNCOE), Wellawaya, Ratnapura, Sri Lanka on the 6th and 7th of October 2007. This is yet another initiative by FOSS.lk to bring the freedom of technology to the rural areas.

An InstallFest too was held at the premises with 45 machines in the RNCOE labs being installed with Linux distributions such as Ubuntu, where the interested crowds participated in the InstallFest even past-midnight.

And so, a yet another event success is seen by the FOSS.lk team in its quest in empowering Sri Lankans with Software Freedom.

The schedule of the event was as follows,
