AG School GNU/Linux Training Event - Day 1

The 1st day of the GNU/Linux training sessions to youngsters at AG School was carried out successfully. I got a little late arriving here at Negambo, as i took ( unknowingly ) a really-really slow bus.

Got to the place around 10.45 - 11.00 , and when i got there anuradha had already finished his session.. :( . Dassa & Kunchana was carrying out GNU/Linux installation session, which was quite interesting..

Once the installation was completed, we took a little break to have lunch. After lunch, rajkumar carried out an openoffice seesion ( 1 of 2 ) with the support chanux while we( anuradha, kunchana, dassa, ravith and myself ) discussed how we can get involved, and co-ordinate our work on GNU/Linux localiztion/translation.

A Getting started guide for sinhala translators can be found here. Don't forget to check out the sinhala translation of the same post here which i just finished up translating.

Check out Dassa's Blog post too, on today's event.
