Extending the App-in-a-box event!

NNTP-Posting-Host:  63.245.216.66

a week long event seems more beneficial than one or two days. making the
participants to attend till the end depends on management too.....Nootan,
are you planning to conduct it at HCOE?

how could this type of event is beneficial for developing countries(like
Nepal)? eager to know :)

How many students are you expecting for the event? I agree with Surit,
finishing off the whole event in a 2-day weekend would be better than a
7-day event. But again, it also depends on the enthusiasm of the
participants. From past experience, I think the number will start to fall
towards the end of such a long event. Cheers and good luck!
