hi,

on behalf of ilugcbe Govind and I conducted a one day workshop at SREC
on python and git. About 40 students attended, the workshop was hands
on, and all the students were able to complete the assignments given to
them.

lesson learned: git is too geeky to teach to students who are clueless
about version control - subversion or mercurial is a better bet.

observation: 10 years ago we had to beg and plead to be allowed to
conduct a workshop in any college. We had to spend our own money and the
managements used to ignore us. Nowadays we are greeted with flowers and
garlands, the managements do their utmost to give us all the facilities,
they pay expenses and even give an honorarium! This is my experience in
the Coimbatore region and in Kerala.
