I conducted a 2 day event at a rural college "Samarth Group of 
Institutes, College of Engineering" on 10th and 11th of march.

The purpose was to educate students on cloud technologies, 
virtualization and linux, and various career opportunities associated 
with them. The target audience were primarily students from the above 
mentioned college and nearby colleges in that region. The college is 
located in Belhe(Tal: Rajuri) on the Nasik road and takes around 3 hrs 
to reach there from Pune.

Around 150 students attended Day1 and it's success was reflected on Day 
2 when more than 200 students came to attend the event. Response was 
amazing. Students were shy in the beginning but once we got them curious 
& interested, lots of queries, questions were pouring in.

Topics covered:

Day 1
1. Introduction to cloud.
2. Technologies behind it.
3. Virtualization & Types of virutalization.
4. Linux and types of virtualization.
5. Career opportunities as a developer and system admin.

Day 2 :
1. Demo of linux installation.
2. Hands of linux installation.

Due to time constraint we could only cover the basics, and there is so 
much more to share.

Last year, I conducted a 3 day event " Train the Teachers" in Sinhagad 
institute (SIMCA) on "Introduction to linux" from various engineering 
colleges in Maharashtra. It was attended by approx. 50 teachers, and the 
response was amazing. And they promised that they'll be teaching their 
students about linux and it's benefits :) .

I wish i could share more of my experience and expertise with other 
teachers and students.
