This years theme: “Effective use of GNU/Linux with special focus on live-CD Distros for localization, education and security”.

CodeFest Idealogy

* Theme: The theme defines the goal for this year's code fest. The theme is “Effective use of GNU/Linux with special focus on live-CD Distros for localization, education and security”

* Objective: To achieve the goal of this years' theme, we break it apart into several development components, which are localization, education and security. Each objective will concentrate in improving the effectiveness of a live-CD Distro.

* Team Collaborations: The teams involved will work on any part of the components in the objectives, but not limited to a single component. Any improvements on the creation of a CD distro that falls under any one of the objectives are also align with this years' theme. Collaborations will be facilitated for the development of a better live-CD Distro and a much more customized Live-CD Distro.
