At the Summit, hSenid Mobile presented their success story that facilitated the building and sustenance of a telco developer community in emerging markets. hSenid Mobile pointed out how of the 6.8 billion global subscriber base only 1.5 billion had access to applications provided by Apple, Android etc handset manufacturers.

Having sponsored a Summit the size of TADS, we are pleased to have shared our expertise in building and sustaining successful developer communities,” said hSenid Mobile CEO, Dinesh Saparamadu.

Two of the key strategies adopted by hSenid Mobile in creating developer communities include emphasizing the need for localized mobile applications and providing multiple and alternate payment options that do not require credit or debit cards.

TADS was the first and only global meeting for Developers who want to learn, share, code and create. The grassroots initiative from and by the people of the industry crafted for Developers and Telcos to collaborate towards the creation of the new wave of the telecom application ecosystem.

MTG_Jogja_220130622_144041The Summit for GSAs kicked off with an ice breaking session to connect students of different countries together. These students introduced themselves and then interacted with each other with a fun activity. The conference was coordinated by Aileen Apolo (Outreach Program Manager – SEA), NeeKhern and Hadi.

Further on the first day, sessions on Google culture and the role of being a Google Student Ambassador were presented. The session on Google Culture was fascinating to listen. We were interested in the way Google employees spend their working hours, how they are treated and how they are allowed to use 20% of work time to work on their own innovative ideas.

IMG_8919On the second day, GSAs were educated on how to use Google Apps for Education. GSAs were given in-depth knowledge on using Google Drive to collaborate among peers, collecting information using Google Forms, using YouTube for educational purposes and how Google Apps could help students in their everyday lives.

During the afternoon of the second day, a group photo of all the participants was taken in their national costumes.

Then the success stories of former GSAs, members of GDG, GBG communities and Map Makers on their contribution for the past year were presented. The stories inspired us and showed us how this experience could be used to bring the best for our country. Furthermore, we learnt what were the failures encountered and how to overcome them.

On the third day, there were a number of sessions on technical aspects of how Google works. Google Search and MapsAPI were discussed in-depth. In the evening, a panel discussion was held with the participation of Googlers from Mountain View head office.


The cultural exchange program was held during the dinner on the second day. Participants from all countries performed with their cultural shows and made a very entertaining night. From Sri Lanka, Shafraz Rahim presented a speech on Sri Lankan culture and the entire GSA team did a performance on Sri Lankans’ common behavior like how we talk and dance.

On the final day, numerous programs were held to develop the communication and presentation skills of the GSAs. One of the exercises saw GSAs form groups to come up with creative ideas to show how Google Apps could facilitate the progress in the education sector.

Finally, the SEARCH Summit 2013 with Google was concluded with the graduation ceremony.

The knowledge we acquired is important to us Sri Lankans, because we are still in the process of incorporating technology into our university culture. Thus with the knowledge we gained, we will be able to contribute in full capacity to upgrade the learning culture in our universities.
