Why we do it

timeline

Being a bunch of FOSS enthusiasts, we preach the idea of “free things are the best things” and firmly believe in sharing knowledge. We strive to elevate the tech culture in our college and for science to make a difference in the world. We believe that this can only be done through giving people digital resources and knowledge in all realms from hardware to software and data to design. We promote FOSS through various endeavours because we believe in the freedom of expression for everyone.
