Learn Flex from Champions for Free !!

September 6, 2010

Adobe Flex is picking pace and is reaching a more organic level viz. the student community in India, and rightly so. If the next generation of engineers come equipped with knowledge for technologies like Flex, ColdFusion, Silverlight, Scala etc it will give Indian IT a new high.

There are lot of initiatives that are going on currently to spread Flex around. Like Adobe’s Flex@Campus which gives educational organization across India to leverage a free 1 day training on Adobe Flex. The flex community in India has extended its support to it. Because it is a hands on program, it gives you a head start into the technology allowing you to create a base on which you can build up.

Then there is RIA Connect. It is a Tekno Point initiative that is not restricted to Flex alone. It could me on any Adobe Product like Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash Professional, Flex, ColdFusion. It is a 1 day program for corporates, educational institutes or any other organization allowing them to understand the underlying abilities of the Technology and a follow up hands on session to get them started. The contents of this one day workshop are modified keeping the audience in mind. For Designers/ Devs there is more of  hands on and for business heads, architects there is more breadth in which the workshop topics are covered.

Don’t wait to get started. Go to the links and fill the forms to take your first step, as common sense says “To reach anywhere, you have to start from the beginning and go through the middle”


Seminar on Web 2.0: Design Guidelines

July 1, 2008

Web 2.0 is the most happening buzz among everyone in the community of internet enthusiasts. In our course for beginners , we have many students who have either not heard about it or have just heard about it but dont know what it means to them. The design team at Tekno point multimedia decided to share some insight with students. After discussing over what is the best way to present the idea , we boiled down to the idea of sharing design guidelines related to web 2.0 , rather then showing them all the web 2.0 websites and leaving them overwhelmed.

It was our first attempt and the response was terrific, all the students responded well to the idea and we had a full house for the session, in fact we had more registrations then what our lab could accommodate .

Design Guidelines The session was for 4 hours , I am sure even this was not enough but we had to limit it to 4 hours considering various logistical issues.

We took a detailed feedback from the students on the seminar as we wanted to know where we can improve. The feedback we received was amazing. We clearly saw that students wanted us to do this more regularly, some of them wanted more duration, a lot of them found it to be very systematic and everyone picked up at least 2 things that will help them to perform their work in a better way after the seminar. The average ratings of the seminar across participants was 4.6 on 5.

Seeing such a tremendous interest from the students , we have decided to conduct similar sessions with students on topics related to their course however out of the scope of the training curriculum at regular intervals. We are doing another round of seminar on 26th July 2008 on Web 2.0 :Design Guidelines for the benefit of students who missed out earlier , . and also there is a seminar on Color Theory coming up from one of the faculty members.
