It was a wrong crowd (only few from CS background) I would say, I realized
only moments before talking. 4 hands went up for knowing something called
PHP. I couldnt help much :( There were few interested though, gave them
pointers to start, contact details.Introduced API(since some were familiar
with java) and showed them some tools.One student was particularly
interested on Semantic Mediawiki, gave some pointers/details (to best of my
knowledge). I havent got any followup mails though.

It was a good visit to alma mater though :)
