Its 7 years since cs-mit started the carte blanche event in ’05. Of all the events I like the Free/Open Source demos in our hangar. Every year its a new learning for me at the demos and this year almost in every stall our juniors had something new.
A KDE/mysql based recipe manager, the following are the highlights
- can show the cholesterol, sugar etc. based on the ingredients.
- can show recipes based on the items we have
- can prepare shopping list for the recipes
I hope this would be useful for bachelors :). My wish list for this is a global database of recipes so that we can pull and push recipes, rate them, mark as favo/like.
- Basket note pads
Another KDE based applciation for note taking. More than a simple text editor or a word processor, we can add any image, to do list, links, app launchers (ie. short cut to files) so on.
- sweet home 3d
Are you planning for building your own home? Try sweet home 3d using which can design/model it, including furniture, flooring so on. I have been looking for this.
w3c’s web development tool. Easy, user friendly and good for HTML beginners. I have just learned, how to show mathematical formulae on web pages. For more info, check this page.
Python based offline package management tool for debian based systems. When could this be useful, here is a scenario, I have desktop in my home (erode) which has basic GNU/Linux installation that comes with ubuntu. We have dial-up (limited download) connection, can be used to download a few packages but not the all we need. Using keryx, I can search and download the packages I need. Keryx allows us to download packages along with their (uninstalled)dependencies. A good demo by Kanchi LUG.
A good work juniors :). Hope to see you on next carte blanche.
