"HOUR OF CODE" SESSION @ G D GOENKA UNIVERSITY

To extend learning beyond the classroom teaching, it is important to make students interact with the industry experts on the latest technology. To fulfil this endeavor, the School of Engineeringinvites people from industry to conduct guest lectures, seminars and workshops on various topics and issues withinand beyond the curriculum of an Engineering student. This helps in facilitating knowledge sharing between students and industry stalwarts.

The next big trend sounds nebulous, but it’s not so fuzzy when you view the value proposition from the perspective of IT professionals. Cloud computing is all the rage. As a metaphor for the Internet, "the cloud" is a familiar cliché, but when combined with "computing," the meaning gets bigger and fuzzier. It consists of hardware and software resources made available on the Internet as managed third-party services. These services typically provide access to advanced software applications and high-end networks of server computers.

On 12th December 2013, School of Engineering invited Mr. Ashutosh Tiwari and Mr. DiwakarBhagat from Web Tek-Labs (IBM Training partners) to delivera lecture onCloud Technology. Dr. Deependra K. Jha(Dean, School of Engineering) welcomed the guest speakersby presenting bouquets as a token of appreciation from G D Goenka University.

About 120 students of Computer Science and Engineering andMechanical Engineeringenthusiasticallyattended the Cloud Technology seminar. Mr. Ashutosh Tiwaristarted with introduction about the Cloud Technology followed by the various services provided by the cloud technology such as infrastructure as a service, platform as a service and software as a service. He also discussed the reasons of popularity of Cloud Technology.The students were also given inputs on Java programming language and its importance and reasons of its popularity among the IT companies. Mr. Ashutosh Tiwari discussed about how complex web applications can be designed using Java. The event was coordinated by Dr. ShaliniBhaskar Bajaj (Associate Professor, School of Engineering).
The School of Engineeringwill continue to organize the series of guest sessions in days to comethat aim to create opportunities for the students to interact and learn from the industry experts.
