Java EE Lecture at SASTRA:
We conducted a Student Technology Camp at SASTRA University on 7th of March.
We had Amol Desai,from IEC bangalore who made his visit to SASTRA University,situated in Thanjavur(Tamil Nadu).We planned to make a good publicity for this and hence we made some intresting stuff like,
1)We posted the event in our College official Website
2)We took registrations for the event,via SMS also
3)Making of Posters.
It was busy saturday morning we were waiting for Amol's visit.He came at 10:30am and then we took him to the server room and helped him arranging stuff,then registered people came to the hall by 11.30 and we started the event by 11.45.
Amol started with need for JAVA,Trends in IT Industry,then he moved on to Servlets and JSP.
Here he gave a cool demo of running servelets from the HTML and Performing the same using a JSP page and then he asked some questions for which we gave T-shirts and Caps.Then he continued with need of JSF and then the writing business process in JSP and he developed a small prototype where he showeed the Flow analyser.This was the coolest of all demos.
He used GlassfishV2 for running all the applications and also gave a small talk on how Glassfish works.
We had a small feliciation after this,where Amol gave away certificates for the Winners of Open Source quiz and also its organisers.Many were inspired by this seesion and have asked for these kind of sessions.The session got over at 1.35pm Amol had to make a 4hrs travel by road(Literally long) for taking his flight tonight.
Thanks to Amol,Sirish(Sun Learning services),Prof.Vaidhyasubramaniam(Dean P&D) and Prof.K.S Ravichandran and ofcourse Abhishek for helping me to do this event.
