First Telugu wiki academy conducted on 6 Oct 2009 at Chirala engineering college, chirala

Arjuna Rao Chavala
Hi
I am glad to report that I have conducted first Telugu wiki academy
conducted on 6 Oct 2009 at Chirala engineering college, chirala, a
small coastal town in Prakasam district Andhra Pradesh, with kind
cooperation from the college authorities.

About 120 third and final year engineering students  participated in
the three hour session in which about 1.5 hours were spent on hands on
practice with telugu typing and changes to the articles in telugu
wikipedia.  Lab facility with about 60 computers and 2 MB internet
pipe was very helpful in making this event a success.  There were
minor technical glitches like wikipedia limiting access to only 6
accounts from the IP proxy.  which need to be addressed for doing
events like this in future.

As Andhra pradesh has over 600 such engineering colleges, doing one
such event in each college can give a boost to promoting Telugu
wikipedia.

More on this on my blog http://teluginux.blogspot.com in a week's time.

Regards
Arjun
