Introduction

OpenHours Episode #83 - The holiday season is here and so is the time of giving (says many traditions :-)! For this, we once again welcome back maddog to share with us his holiday cheer and gift ideas during this wonderful time of the year. In this second annual holiday special, we will take open source gift giving to a whole new level as we look into some ideas that require a bit of work, some that require a bit of $$$, and other that are just plain fun or worthwhile to the open source enthusiast. So, dress in your finest holiday robes and join us in celebrating open source as a reason for the season!

Don’t forget to join us in our new OpenHours IRC channel: #OpenHours & #96boards

Carl - C
brought a student to a Rails User Group and that lauched his career - so sharing FOSS and user group experienes is good.

Santa Penguin - SP
Yes!  There are many people who started their careers from a single event

Tyeth - T
Universities should be able to contribute to the leading open source alternatives and then they'd also have the specialist technical knowledge to assist the other departments / students of the world.

Carl - C
Goood point Mani - also forcing students to buy heavy books instaed of cheap pdf's that won't force them to carry a 100 lbs of books would be great.

Mani - M
@Tyeth: Exactly

Carl - C
I would donate to that!!!

Guillermo - G
On the subject of MATLAB alternatives, check this out, you will be impressed:
https://www.scilab.org/

Sahaj - S
carry 100MB not 100lbs

Mani - M
@Carl: Agree with you

Guillermo - G
You can run .m scrpits almost unchanged.

Mani - M
@Gulliermo: yeah.scilab is also the best alternative to Matlab
@Sahaj is having something same on his list

Carl - C
