Note on Online Courses from Coursera

Happen to see that there are couple of courses in Coursera that starts near future. I would highly recommend all our students (who have attended OpenGyan workshops) to register and try to complete the course. The courses are for someone who knows little programming and i believe the take away for any computer science undergraduate would be huge. The professional who feels that they lack algorithmic thinking (like me) should also get benefit out of it.

The second course would exposure us to land of Algorithms while the first one would help us to design and analyze the algorithms. These two courses nicely complement each other. I am pretty sure that these two courses would challenge us for next 2 months and add fun to our life.

Happy learning

Good Start for 2015 @ OpenGyan

OpenGyan was in Trichy for a one day workshop. It is our first workshop in 2015 and we had a good start. One of the alumnus (Siva, thank you) of Jayaram College of Engineering and Technology who used to work with us introduced us to HOD. We were supposed to have workshop on Programming but we had to switch over to general topics as we have got many students from different streams. So, we did a workshop on "College to Corporate" and touched on "Resume Writing" with giving elements of good resume and review of the resumes of the students, "How to present oneself in interviews" and a mock "GD" and review of the GD.

We will be there on another day for a programming workshop.

And finally the day was ended with a very long discussion with Principal, HOD (CSE) and there were a lot of exchange of interesting ideas, exchange of thoughts on academic, industry and state of industry. We happen to capture few snaps during and after the workshop and the pictures are hosted here.
