Fedora Day at Misr University for Science and Technology (MUST)

On 22 December 2008, we had other successful fedora event at Misr University for Science and Technology, It was one of the last fedora events in 2008, it was just after the reporting Fedora Day at Menoufiya University, which was mentioned here.

We first (Omar and I) visited the information technology faculty dean, he welcomed us. It was nice meeting him, the schedule went as we had on Helwan event.

From L to R (Me, Collage staff, Collage Dean, Dr.Mona the event host,Omar ,Hazem the organizer.)

Then we headed to the assigned lecture room, the number of attendees was great if compared with the information technology students. Attendees were around 100 and the faculty have only 300 students.

MUST Dean Attended

The dean attended the session, the interaction of the students wasn't as expected as we were comparing it with Menoufiya University students. But it was fine given that most of them was the first time to hear about FOSS.

As usual we ended with Q & A session, I had good questions, the shocking fact was most users of several Linux distros weren't studying anything related to information technology.

MUST live usb creation

Last part was the Live usb creation for students, as they were aware of the idea as it was announced on the flyers.

MUST volunteers and organizers

The report is really late but it took time to get all photos from students to upload them and write the report.
