How does ForIT work?
ForIT majorly functions over the mailing list called “Discussion” [discussion at forit dot in]. This is where all the members discuss on various topics of interest of the group. The mailing list is also the place where the group identifies the need to act in the cause of the IT professionals' community. Following the discussions held in the list, the group decides to form an action group of volunteers (or Organising Committee) and plans for conducting the activities. The 'activists' would then frequently meet up at a common place for better interaction and association in coordinating the tasks at hand.

Where is ForIT?
ForIT doesn't work from a fixed office room or anything close to it (at least, not yet!). All communication happens over the mailing list or mobile communication. There are active (and dormant) ForIT members in various different IT companies in Hyderabad. We also have members who have moved out to various other places in India and abroad continuing to support and participate in the group's activities.
