Seminar on open source software
LUDHIANA: Doraha Institute of Management and Technology on Thursday organised a seminar-cum-workshop on open source software for BCA students. Professor Arvind Dhingra of Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College delivered a lecture on the occasion. "In countries like Argentina, China, Brazil, United States, France and United Kingdom, special emphasis is being laid on formal national-level polices for its promotion. They are providing direct subsidies to open source projects," Dhingra said. He added that increasing interest in championing the uptake and adoption of open source applications could be attributed to the benefits these offer.
