If the dustbin is not cleaned in specific time, then the record is sent to the higher authority who can take appropriate action against the concerned contractor. This system also helps to monitor the fake reports and hence can reduce the corruption in the overall management system. This project won the Best Paper Award in the National Conference on Eco-friendly Technological Innovations for Sustainable Development (Stream: – CS).
PGIF Program organized by CSE Department
Computer Science & Engineering department organized a Technical workshop on free and open source software (FOSS) lab in association with Post Graduate interdisciplinary forum on 29th March and April 3rd 2017 at, 1:00 pm, at Digital Library, Library Block. PG Coordinator Ms. Minu Lalitha Madhavu addressed the students and introduced the faculty members handling the sessions.
The session started at 1:05pm.Ms Soumya Murali, Asst Professor computer science and engineering Department gave an introductory session of FOSS.Mr Jayaprakash,Harware and network engineer SBCE gave a practical session on Open source software tools.Ms. Disha. Librarian SBCE gave an awareness on e-resources. For the free and open source software lab all the systems in the digital library was installed with Ubuntu.
Free and open-source software (FOSS) is computer software that can be classified as both free software and open-source software.That is, anyone is freely licensed to use, copy, study, and change the software in any way, and the source code is openly shared so that people are encouraged to voluntarily improve the design of the software. This is in contrast to proprietary software, where the software is under restrictive copyright and the source code is usually hidden from the users.
The benefits of using FOSS include decreasing software costs, increasing security and stability (especially in regard to malware), protecting privacy, and giving users more control over their own hardware. Free, open-source operating systems such as Linux and descendants of BSD are widely utilized today, powering millions of servers, desktops, smart phones (e.g. Android), and other devices. Free software licenses and open-source licenses are used by many software packages
