Sun Student Seminars at Chennai-In collobaration with Aptech
By Dwarakanath J on Jul 24, 2009
Long time back I wrote a blog,which is some two weeks before,and now I am here to share some of my experiences with Aptech seminars at Chennai.now Aptech has become Authorised Sun education center and they want to kick start sun certifications at Chennai and other branches,they have arranged for a orientation session with many of the colleges in chennai and they decided to do it in colloboration with Sun learning services.
With this big intro,I will start relishing my trip along with you,they have planned for three student seminars in two days at three places,
1.Valliammai Womens College
2.AMS college of Engineering
3.MGR janaki womens college
First day was bit early,the student seminar was organized at 9am in the morning and I was asked to address some 550 candidates.I met the principal after the assembly and she was shocked to see me as a very small boy.(Rather she was also bit puzzled).When I started the seminar I got a different reaction from the crowd,but I slowly persuaded them to the listen to me and then we discussed on open source,Java,and then there was a demo on JavaFX,Netbeans and its cool features.There was also lots of questions from them regarding java,J2me and also in javaFx.
Second Seminar was organized at AMS college of Engineering,Avadi.It was college with lots of boys and they intially behaved very eratically,but slowly they were back in track and plunged me with their questions.
The second day seminar was a totally delayed one.It was not just my seminar,they had an industry expert face to face interaction before my session,where some companies top HR managers,engineers from IBM and many other people were giving about the recession and how to start your career.So I was bit puzzled,how to start my presentation.Before my seminar,I had two surprises there,one was in the seminar banner,there were also topics like Glassfish,Virtualisation which I was not aware of before.So I created some slides for all these topics,and installed Glassfish with my Netbeans,and installed virtualbox for the demo.
I started off my presentation with albert einstein quotes and then showed them javaFx demo,Glassfish demo and Virtual box demo.Many of them became so interested that they registered for SCJP directly.
