A small spark can trigger a mighty explosion. A small idea can turn things around in a very big way. This was the ideology behind the creation of “amaljyothibeats”, the official campus blog of Amaljyothi College of engineering. The sudden growth of the campus blog prompted the students and the faculties to start the blogging club. To spread the culture of blogging and e-writing, that is the main aim of this wonderful new club.
With more than 60 members from various years, the club runs successfully and it provides ample opportunities for those who think different and stand apart from the rest.

It can include both the system software as well as the application software. System Software include- GNU/Linux, Apache Web Server, BSD etc. and Application Software include OpenOffice, Gimp, TeX and LaTeX typesetting systems etc.Some benefits offered by FOSS tools are:
- Developers can modify the code and adapt it to their personal needs.
- FOSS tools have a lot of online support as many tools are developed by a community of developers over the Internet. Hence, the bug fixing is also very quick.
- FOSS tools are of high societal relevance because of their freeness and openness.
- FOSS tools provide a lot of scope for innovation as the source code is available for modification
- FOSS tools provide the necessary support for entrepreneurs who want to start off with less capital
