Hi Karan,
Is there a telegram group where I can see the updates on what events are planned? Or this thread would be the best place?

LinkedIn : FOSS United Hyderabad | LinkedIn

Total Attendancies: 22 people

Talks: 5

  1. Data driven groom selection. A fun introduction to a Multi-criteria decision making (MCDM) method by Sai Krishna Dammalapati
  2. Overcoming the Fear of Contributing to Open Source by Afnan Abdul Vasay
  3. Engineering Solutions For Everyone! by Kirankumar Ambati
  4. Intro to plane project from Plane team members
  5. Developer Productivity & Debugging from Adnan (Code for India)

Feedback & what can be improved:

  1. More social media promotions would be very helpful, we need to decide on talks & speakers at least 3 or 4 days
  2. The location is very far from usual IT companies, also it is summer so we need to discuss better timings & more accessible locations

Volunteer for the meetup: Sridhar katta, Dinesh, Ibrahim
