Fest type: Annual National level Technical Symposium
Organized by: NIT Durgapur
Fest Date – January 30 to February 01, 2015
Fest details: Mukti, in its 8th year now, is one of the prime FOSS Symposium of the country. Having attracted major contributions to the open Source field through the string of workshops and talks, GNU/Linux Users’ Group, NIT Durgapur strives to make a dream come true. A dream where everyone, understands the power of Linux in daily computing and liberates itself from the clutches of proprietary software.
Mukti is the culmination of that dream. Every year, the FOSS Community comes together in NIT Durgapur and celebrates the spirit of freedom. We organize developer sprints over popular Open Source Softwares, all night hack-a-thons, and many talks and workshops.
Organizing such an event requires time, effort and most importantly resources to achieve the level of perfection and to properly channelize the passion that we have for the betterment of the society. And that’s where you can help us. Being an associate of Mukti along with GNU/Linux Users’ Group, you benefit from reaching out to a vast pool of students, young entrepreneurs and excellent minds, and also an opportunity to connect with the leaders in the industry, who would be gracing this occasion.
For Mukti’15, Mr. AmodMalviya, the CTO (Chief Technical Officer) at Flipkart would be gracing the occasion as the keynote speaker. Also, here are some of the stats from our events last year:
Codecracker: The flagship event of Mukti, CodeCracker is a algorithmic programming contest which witnesses participation from 19 countries and around 5000 users participating it worldwide. Last year, the prize went to a participant from China.
Online Treasure Hunt: An engrossing treasure hunt online, keeps the students glued to their systems, figuring our clues to the next level and ultimately reaching for the prize. This event had atleast 2000 users accessing the portal at anytime during it’s 7day run.
Linit: Our annual technical magazine, is circulated around the country, and your presence in Linit would help your brand image as well would improve our circulation.
This year, we plan to go even bigger and even better, while sticking to our roots, which is to spread the knowledge and advantages of FOSS and enabling people build better solutions to make the society a better place!
Mukti, which is being organized from 30th would be much better with your assistance. We hope to hear back from you soon.
