We have been running a highly popular Request CD program for the last one year. Through this people across India have been requesting Free and Open Source Software from us and we have been downloading and writing these on to CDs and DVDs and sending to these people. We have only been charging for the cost of the media and the shipping and handling charges from the people because we wanted to use this program to promote Free Software across India. We have prepared the list of software that are currently available from us through RequestCD and are publishing it here

You can order any of these CDs and DVDs from RequestCD. Even if the software you want is not here you can still order it through RequestCD and we will download it and send it to you as long as the license of the software meets the OSI guidelines.

We started zyxware with a vision to play an active role in changing the world around us positively. We are happy to announce the pilot mode launch of our first community initiative - Freelance@Zyxware. Through this project we hope to empower the student community technologically and financially. We hope that this would also give them a wonderful opportunity to learn and try new technologies, interact with other students with similar likes and the best part - get paid for doing this. Additionally we hope to nurture and build a forum of students through this project to promote FOSS, entrepreneurship, other open ideas, and similar initiatives.

Even though Kerala can proudly claim that it has almost 100% literacy rates, the e-literacy rates are dismally low. The younger generation is being initiated into the world of computers through their schools very early in their lives. However the not-so-young generation has missed the bus and of these only those with strong initiative have successfully gotten into the bandwagon. Kerala Government is extensively trying to spread e-literacy but there is still a big chunk of the population who have not participated in the Akshaya campaign. Some reasons are i) no time after regular employment, ii) uneasiness in going to a literacy class iii) sensitivity in proclaiming the e-illiterate status. To tackle some of this problems we have launched a test program where we send our staff to train the e-literate in the comfort of their homes. We are just taking on the enquiries one at a time currently to see the general response. If this program is a success we hope that it would generate employment opportunities for the e-educated unemployed youth in the state. Additionally this program would increase prospects for students to get some part-time employment and earn some extra income. Let us wait and see Community Projects Training Drupal Contributions Leave a reply Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marker *

Freelancing is not just sitting home and earning some extra income, it is in fact a proven career option. Anybody who is capable of working in an IT company should be able to earn as much or even more through freelancing. Besides being a viable employment option for the unemployed, it gives students and non-IT employees an addional revenue source. As the adage goes - there is no free lunch - you have to put in some effort to get into this field. However it is not very difficult and if one spends some dedicated effort he/she can start off in this field in a matter of 2-4 weeks. The following gives a mashup of some of the points you have to consider...

There is a whole bunch of them here and they call themselves as Indie Developers. Nice name eh? And there has been some successful players in the market as well. Nick Bradbudy is one of them. He is maintaining a blog at where he recently blogged some generous tips for wannabe indie developers. I think, his blog is an inspirational tool, which probably you might want to add it to your initial list in this blog. Yet another one is Jan Goyvaerts the creator of EditPad Pro. He maintains a blog at I myself is a loyal customer of both Nick’s and Jan’s products and I can attest myself that they do what they preach. Yet another concept, which is somewhat relevant to Freelancing is MicroISV a word first coined by Eric Sink (Founder of SourceGear) and later being used and misused by wannabe entrepreneurs. ~ranjith Add new comment
