On the 26th of September 2020, the Technology Sharing Club (TSC) of the Department of ECE conducted a Tech Talk on “WEB DEVELOPMENT” by Mr. Naveen B Narayan. This was an online event conducted under the guidance of the faculty coordinators Ms. Divya Sharma and Dr. Reema Sharma.
The speaker Mr. Naveen spoke about practical web development. He was very clear and confident about the topic. The session started off with Mr. Naveen highlighting the basic interdisciplinary skills and roles of a web developer which included topics on Graphic design and Information Architecture. We were introduced to the various open-source tools available for Web development such as Berkeley DB, Glassfish, LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) stack and Perl/Pluck , thereby ensuring that the cost of learning Web development is kept to a minimum.
The session proceeded further with Mr. Naveen focusing on other factors contributing to the growth of the industry, which has been the rise of a few easy-to-use WYSIWYG Web-development softwares such as Adobe Dreamweaver, Blue Griffon and Microsoft Visual Studio. Students were made aware of the importance of scripting and programming languages required to use such software. We came across many interesting and powerful examples of Web Design such as media queries, dropbox, magic leap, fluid grids and many more.
We were given demonstrations on how to create webpages and projects that students can do on Web Development. The session was later open to queries, wherein students interacted with the speaker and also put forth their views on Web Development. The Tech Talk was informative and useful to the participants.
Our special thanks to the chairman, Dr. Mohan Manghnani ; our Principal, Dr. Manjunatha and our HOD, Dr. Sanjeev Sharma for giving us the opportunity to conduct this event. Our sincere thanks to our faculty co-ordinators Ms. Divya Sharma and Dr. Reema Sharma whose constant guidance and support led to the completion of this event.
