SWIFT Event Meetup


Greetings from SWIFT Women In Free Technologies(SWIFT)! We hope you are enjoying learning free technologies collaboratively as a part of your college GNU/Linux Users Group (GLUG).

SWIFT is an initiative by Free Software Foundation, Tamil Nadu (FSFTN) to help increase women’s participation and contribution to technology. To know more about it, take a look at past SWIFT activities.

This weekend, we have organized a women only meetup to learn, explore and contribute to OpenStreetMap (OSM).

So what is OSM?

OSM is a collaborative project to create a free editable map of the world. So, each of us could begin contributing to OSM, by mapping our neighbourhood. For an overall understanding of OSM, check out

What are we gonna do at the meetup?

The target for the meetup is to map 99 places! (And that is something we can take pride in, when accomplished!). And these places could be hospitals, schools, ATM kiosks, restaurants, roads, streets, parks, shops, etc. So, if there is a hospital close to your place that isn’t on the map, you can simply add it yourself (and feel good about it!).
Apart from mapping places, we will also look into tracing routes.


We encourage you to bring a laptop.
