Dear Friends,

As a part of our FTW(FSFTN Tech Weekends) initiative, we are organising a Hackathon/Bootcamp on the the 15th of august for college students and general public .

Well, Independence day is just a co-incidence!

In this one day event, we will be having 3 parallel tracks running at the same time:

  • Ruby On Rails (Web application development)

  • Blender (3D Animation)

  • Wikipedia (The largest Encyclopedia)

The participants in each track would collaborate with each other and Brain-Storm together to Hack on a real-time project, which will, of course be a Free Software.

Each of the 3 tracks would be assigned with one or more mentors from that respective fields/communities, who would guide them through and beyond the Hackathon.

Requirements:

Ruby On Rails:

Intermediate level knowledge about Rails framework.Basic level knowledge about git and github.(VCS) basics of postgresql.

Blender:
