Visiting Infosys

Today, the international speakers of LB/2004 were invited to visit the sponsor Infosys, apparently India's largest IT outsourcing company.

They've been growing from 7 to 35,000 engineers very rapidly, and their Bangalore campus is certainly the most luxurious and westernized part of India I've seen so far (not that I've seen much of India either).

Anyway, we were informed about their recent Linux and FOSS related activities, met their internal InfyLUG (Infosys Linux User Group), met one of the seven founders and Andi Kleen gave a lecture about the kernel development process, that was attended by 300 employees and streamed to all the other Infosys campuses.
