Using open source software to uncover extra terrestrials!

  1. 1. Shaitan. DevOp at the Alien Discovery Mission (ADM), Ettimadai, 641-112. Currently dating pretty hot stuff on the moon (more on that off-stage).
  2. 2. Mcool. Genius. The ADM is his brainchild. Hacks on a lot of space data. Knows the fact that the only way to survive in Ettimadai is to close your eyes and gulp that food down.
  3. 3. Eswar. Named after God himself. Please pronounce in Hindi or he won’t like it. Would like to return to Earth since he forgot his pillow last time.
  4. 4. 9 November, 2006.
  5. 5. Join #gsoc-amrita on freenode Tweet with #tknow to @Tknow Don’t switch off your phone ;)
  6. 6. 3 years later.
  7. 7. Every year, approximately 1MN extra terrestrials on Mars lose their day jobs because bosses blame the wrong guys.
  8. 8. Commercial: teck{know}logy club tshirts up for grabs. Meet me after the event ;)
  9. 9. Every year, approximately 250 new kids in Ettimadai spend 3 hours on the last rd semester reday of their 3 inventing X (or Y or Z) management system.
  10. 10. Here’s some interval time for those of you who want to install and set up git on your machines. ;)
  11. 11. $ git init Magic time ;) $ git add . $ git commit –m “Fix the blinking light that shines on Eswar and hurts his cute eyes” Some more magic time. $ git add . $ git commit –m “It’s difficult to come up with fancy commit messages every single time.”
  12. 12. $ git clone $ cd moonrescue Magic time ;) $ git add . $ git commit –m “Grab the pillow once the rescue process is over” $ git push github master
  13. 13. Stop looking at my face and try, git.
  14. 14. I can’t put this here, but right now I’ll show you around GitHub. The basics – creating a fork, reporting issues, sending pull requests, merging it in.
  15. 15. When you run into specific problems, just Google them and look for answers on Stack Overflow.
  16. 16. Photo of a Google result that shows result pages on very specific queries
