FOSSMeet NIT Calicut

Fortunately i got my colleague Biju to attend the FOSSMeet at NIT Calicut.We two delivered talks.We reached at NIT campus on sunday morning.Mr.Karthik met me at the main gate and he directed us to the Bhaskara Hall where all open talks happened.

My talk was about Introduction to NLTK and it was stared at 12.05 as requested by Mr.Anil.After discussed about the introduction part about NLP an NLTK i went thru some basic practical work outs.I think it was the best way to learn a practical tool kit.

Many doubts came from audience,and i tried to clarify it.Biju also supported me to clarify some doubts.Actually it make the session interactive.After my talk i got a memento from fossmeet team.

Biju delivered his talk on Apache Mahout at 3.00 pm.He provided a demo of Document classification and Recommendation systems.Much of the audience were students.I think they got a bit confused because Biju’s talk was on latest technologies like Mahout and Hadoop.He tried his best to explain as simple as possible.Me also tried to clarify map-reduce concept.Question came about some algorithms he discussed.

Met many students after our talk.It was very nice to interact with students.Some of them are doing great jobs.

Thank u fossmeet team..Bye NITC
