Sun @ NIT Durgapur TechFest

Sun was invited to participate in NIT Durgapur’s techfest – Mukti.
It’s primarily driven by the university’s Linux User Group – an active bunch of students that I later got to meet and interact with.

I and Moinak had a session each on Java and Solaris respectively. More than the sessions, I think we enjoyed the interaction with the students.
We met some really bright students – technically brilliant and very creative. Unfortunately, most of them don’t want a career in the technology
industry and are already preparing for getting into Business schools – a common situation at Technical institutes in India these days.

I don’t know how good they’ll be in the business world but they could really carve a niche for themselves in the engineering world.
