NSBM Computer Science Batch 12.2 organized an industrial visit to WSO2, a world famous company concentrating heavily on open source middleware applications, for a seminar for undergraduate students regarding the industry. The seminar covered a wide range of topics including the necessary skills a computing student should acquire, an introduction to mobile and cloud computing and finally, insight about the various jobs available in industry.
The students were given a warm welcome and it was a well organized seminar. In the first session, the seminar focused on future goals and how to achieve them and the skills required to be competent professionals in the IT industry.
The second session focused on the new trends in mobile development, including different platforms and developing cross-platform applications. Furthermore, WSO2 Mobile introduced their new subsidiary company and their open source mobile products. Before moving on to the next session, WSO2 Mobile team organized an interesting team activity that encouraged students to showcase their resource planning and time management abilities. The last session of the seminar discussed software companies and their marketing as well as open source software and cloud computing. At the end of the seminar they distributed free WSO2 T-shirts for the participants.
This was NSBM Computer Science students’ first industry visit and it was a riveting experience. Cheers to WSO2 for investing time and money on behalf of new comers to the industry and showing them the path to success and excel in the industry.
