different types of work
- Main problem is finding the motivation to do the actual work.
- Maybe we are too young to take it up.
- Knowledge is what is important.
- Instead of teaching them how to use Django, teach them how to build Django
- Have different workshops for different topics for engagement.
Sourav:
- Is it the right space to discuss individual problem.
- Agenda 1:

Randomo guy 1:
- People think free workshops are not worth it
Random girl 1:

Krace:
- 1 day workshop for 3rd year college students.
- Use python's http.server -> build an intereactive application.
Random guy2:

- its a double edged sword.
