Technology workshop is an idea of having a group nomination from different IT organization. This gives us a heterogeneous crowd. The advantage of cross functional and cultural mix with independent discussions and viewpoints is a great takeaway in these events. Check out on our upcoming events.

Workshop 2: Software Estimation using FPA
Software systems are becoming increasingly difficult to measure and understand. As they increase in complexity, there needs to be an efficient method that can be used to understand and communicate software size needs.
After completing his B.E. in Information Science & Tech, he went to work: helping build an antivirus product using assembly and C on a DOS platform. He thought DOS was awesome, until one fateful day he "discovered" the joys of Unix! (from none other than Richard Steven's iconic original "UNIX Network Programming" book and working on SCO Unix). Many years later, working on the creative side (doing multimedia and web design), he "re-discovered" Free Unix on the PC - in the form of Linux of course.
Kaiwan has plumbed the depths of the Linux system programming stack – right from mastering bash scripting, to system programming userspace with ‘C’, to deep OS-level kernel internals hacking and debugging. Along the way, he has worked on several commercial and opensource products and projects. His contributions include drivers for the mainline Linux OS, and several small self-founded projects hosted on GitHub. He is currently working on and looking to actively contribute in the Linux OS hardening and security space.
His passion for Linux and actively programming on it by working on industry and opensource projects and products, feeds well into his other passion – for close to two decades now, Kaiwan has been teaching engineers the intricacies of the Linux OS, and how to design and implement code (for robustness and security).
It doesn’t hurt that he is an ultra-marathoner too (several marathons, a few 50k’s and one 100 km event).
Workshop 1: Security Hacking and Hardening in Linux
Security in Linux is rapidly becoming the choice for many developers. According to the LinuxDevices.com website, the significant reasons are that the source code is available, there are no runtime royalties and it is a robust reliable operating system which has excellent networking support.This Workshop, teaches embedded skills using an embedded environment. Unlike most Linux Workshops it uses hands-on demonstration with Proof of concept that is essentially needed in security for every organization.
