Campus Life ➲ Clubs


GNU/LINUX user groups are the means of spreading the idea of free software and philosophy of free software in campuses.

GLUGS serves as a base to technically empower yourself, interact with professionals, right from installation to hacking the Linux kernel, to web technologies like Dropal and at the same time raising these questions of self reliance.

GLUGS are the basic units of the mass movements like FSMK (Free Software Movement Karnataka), Sulekha (in Andhra Pradesh), FSF (Free Software Foundation in US) and etc who spread the ideologies of free software to the world.

There are many more GLUGS all over the world in Karnataka; we have GLUGS in the colleges like RVCE, BMSIT, DSCE, PES Mandya, OXFORD, PESIT SOUTH CAMPUS, our own college JVIT, etc

In our college the GLUG was started in August 2013. There were many technical sessions, workshops, camps, etc conducted which were jointly organized by FSMK and our college management, some of the examples are,

* FSMK conducted a 3 days residential documentation workshop jointly organized with JNANA VIKAS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY, Bidadi at our campus from 23 January, 2014 it was attended by 16 faculty members of different college and 40 volunteers from FSMK. The documentation workshop was sponsored by spoken tutorial project, an Initiative by Government of India to promote IT Literacy through open source software.

* There was 9 days Industry oriented camp in the year 2013 which was again conducted in our college. It was also a residential workshop.
