The Summer Training – 2015

Ahhhh ,Β  this is exciting.
Frankly Speaking , usually at the beginning when i was completely new to the FOSS world and just began my learning , i was often said by Kushal Da to go through the previous years ” IRC logs ” and i followed it too. I saw the conversations there ( some were too funny πŸ˜€ ) , people helping each other , pulling each other’s leg and what not. Saw the heading stated as , SUMMER TRAINING. Though , had no idea what it was ( at that time ) and later when i got puffed up with everything , i came to know what ” summer training ” actually was.
Since then , wanted to be a part of it , wanted to see those things exactly happening as it was there in the ” IRC logs ”
Well , the time came.

DAY – 1

20th June ‘ 15 – The 8th session of the summer training and yes, i am a proud part of it πŸ™‚
I was excited since morning , logged into IRC ( Which i usually do ) but today it was the other part of my exciting world.
Spent my entire day reading the last year’s IRC logs.. ( and trust me, it benefits a lot )
Later at 18:30 P.M ( according to the IST ) , was when Kushal Da showed up. There were other volunteers too , including Chandan Kumar , Devyani Di , Sayan Choudhary and many others i am yet to know about πŸ™‚
I was not new , so was having my part of fun πŸ˜‰Β  Seeing everyone talking , asking their questions ( of which , i knew answers already ) , Learning a few things i had no idea of.
and the best part was , Kushal Da answering everyone so patiently πŸ™‚ I just had my fingers crossed ( if you know what i mean πŸ˜‰ )
There were around 130 users in all , which was a fascinating thing to see. It is nice to know there are other people who can crave so much in for learning.
Today , it was an introduction class and a question and answer session was held then after.
We were given a few links –
