PC ASSEMBLY

5.0/5 rating (1 votes)

As engineers we need to know how the modern tech world started and for this we have to get back to the basics; assembling of a personal computer.

After you have all the computer parts in place, you get to learn arguably the most fun part of computers: putting the parts together. You don’t need many tools to assemble your computer, in fact the only one you must have is the screwdriver.

This event was mainly held for the FE’s and it did get a huge response from them. We, the IEEE committee, got to interact with the new comers and it was indeed a pleasure. They seemed to be a bunch of enthusiasts who want to grab any learning opportunity provided to them. To add the excitement burgers were served for refreshment. It was a super hit event with 84 participants.

Flash

0.0/5 rating (0 votes)

After a very technical session on JDBC, we decided to go light. So, the next session was on Flash. Flash, a popular authoring software developed by Macromedia, is used to create vector graphics-based animation programs with full-screen navigation interfaces, graphic illustrations, and simple interactivity in an antialiased, resizable file format that is small enough to stream across a normal modem connection. Basically, it is used for animation. All the websites like IIT’s festivals and even NIRMAAN and SPACE(SPCE-SPIT’s festivals ) used FLASH . Flash calls in for creativity so this session saw students from all branches. It was a success . It also opened doors for students to become technical heads for college festivals. Creativity with technicality is a great combination!
