The Sun Club: Episode 21h 35m | Feb 8, 2022
Back in 2008, the Sun Club was launched consisting of several passionate like-minded individuals of our university. In 2009, Sun Microsystems started an initiative called the "Open Source University Meetup" (OSUM), to evangelize and spread awareness on OSS within universities. Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Amritapuri was an active member at that time and conducted several events and conferences under this name, the most notable being FOSSter in 2009. With Sun Microsystems eventually getting acquired by Oracle in 2010, the Campus Ambassador and the OSUM program were shut down. Later, our club explored more prospects in open source and finally became the club it is today which we now know as amFOSS.
All the way from the 2006-2010 batch, Avinash Joshi, one of the active members during the club's inception, shares more about the Sun Club, the first ever FOSSter conference, the Sun Code for Freedom and so much more!
