A Workshop on MIT Android Application Development
NUCES Circuits Society (NCS) organized APP-DEV 101, a workshop on MIT Android Application Development IDE, on 30 – 31 January 2015. Ms. Maria Nasir (Faculty, EE, FAST-NU, Lahore) and Ms. Arooj Mubasher rendered their valuable services as the instructors. It was an honor to have Mr. Muhammad Huzair Awan, the youngest Microsoft IT specialist, attending this workshop. The workshop session was quite insightful. The aim of this workshop was to provide a learning platform to the students having no formal background in computer science or programming, where they can quickly learn to develop a simple Android application. The tutorials in the workshop were so insightful that all the participants, including Mr. Huzair (just 8-year old) ended up developing fully functional smartphone applications. The students responded with zeal to the event. More than 150 students applied for registration. However due to limited number of seats, only 70 students were entertained on first-come first-serve basis. The workshop was conducted in Computer Lab 5. Every participant had to bring his/her own laptop and android phone. A special thanks to IT support team for providing uninterrupted WiFi access with the capacity of accommodating more than 150 devices. We would also like to extend our gratitude to the instructors for their strenuous efforts in conducting this event and turning it into success. The team NCS intends to organize more exciting events of this sort in the future.
