Hi all, 

I will not be able to make any travel in Jan. We have lot of work to complete in getting more software and applications on board. 

I will start traveling again from Feb. Kindly Note, the travels and trainings are personal so kindly schedule this over weekend so that it doesn't affect the regular work. 

I am looking for an open calendar where you can request your sessions. Let me check if Google calendar can be made open. 

Thanks for your interest.

Hi Mr.Khasim, 

I am Sanyam Agarwal from Pune. I came to know about your community from "Linux for u" magazine. I joined this community at the end of December. I had seen, you provide free training on embedded Linux with your ARM cortex core board. I had gone through the syllabus of your training, and eager to learn. Therefore we build our community of around 30 persons (i.e. students plus some job professional having less than 1 year of experience) in order to take training from you plus we want to buy that board “USB-powered beagle board”. For the training you had mentioned about arranging the hall, projector etc. For that there is one company “Comptrix solution private Limited” they are funding our community in order to purchase the board as well as arranging the hall, projector etc. So we welcome you at our place for the training and I hope we will make out a fruitful result out of that. 

I am waiting for your reply and hope to see the positive feedback from your side.

Thanks & Regards 

Sanyam Agarwal 

Comment by aggarwal.sanyam, Feb 04, 2009 
Hi Mr. Khasim 

Thanks a lot for your reply 

It will be fine for us, if you would visit our centre in March (around 15th). But if possible, can you do it as early as possible and, as I mentioned in my previous mail that we want to buy the board too (i.e. USB-powered beagle board), so could you bring the board with you so that we can buy it instantly. 

It will be very helpful for us if you can provide the price quotes of that board, so when you will visit our place at that time will not be any problem regarding price because Comptrix solutions private Limited company is helping us in order to purchase that board. Therefore we need to inform them also regarding the same.
