IndiaOS’s first chapter opened as a conference, but we intent to make it much more than a conference, a broader platform for fostering and supporting FOSS ecosystem and its peripheries in India. As @rushabh said, FOSS needs not just appreciation, but support.
To kick start this effort, ERPNext Foundation and Zerodha, under IndiaOS, are awarding a cash grant of Rs 1 lakh each to two participants that we believe are doing, impactful work.
- Internet Freedom Foundation (IFF)
- Biswas (Kerala Rescue)
We hope to expand the grants program, and also build other means of supporting FOSS projects going forward.
Congratulations to the recipients!
