I started to deliver my ideas and concepts regarding OpenStreetMap. In what status Open Street Map is now, What to do with open street map, What are the things we can do with OSM? Like these questions i gave my thoughts to fulfill the gaps obtained between the OSM and users. Also I told them how easy it is to contribute for OSM, due to missing of some sample files i was not able to give live demo of editing the map at offline. But i make sure of covering that concept in upcoming meetups, instead of that i narrated the steps involved for editing the map at both offline and online with the help Java-OSM
After then Mr. Vijay Ganapathy tells about the concept of PXE-boot, also he gave example in real time like installing OS for Colleges. For these kind of process PXE-boot is useful. Like some other concepts of real time workings he shared his experience.
Finally he gave some ideas to implement the FOSS lab in Kanchipuram colleges. So that many people will get awareness of FOSS. We windup the session around 5.30 p.m.
