CO-FOUNDER OF NSITONLINE RETURNS TO TEACH WEB-D
Siddharth Goyal, an alumnus of NSIT 2009 decided not to sit for his placements because he believed “Let no one but me dictate what I do”. Hence Dulcet Solutions, a one stop solution of all web related needs, was formed. After two and a half years of work he felt that good new web designers were lacking in the market, so he came up with an idea to setup an Institute to teach people “How to Learn Web Technologies”. He started with WebInstitute and to reach out to more students, an idea to conduct workshops in college premises struck his mind.
With the help of two second year students, of Instrumentation and Control Engineering, Sahil Gulati and Yogesh Arora, he conducted a 13 day workshop (45 hours) in NSIT in CAD lab, COE block. The idea of the workshop came during our end semester exams. So the two organizers had to face many difficulties in publicising the workshop but finally it paid off. The workshop was a huge success with 33 registrations, out of which some of the students were from IIT Bombay, BITS and St. Stephens.
In a short span of 13 days, the students got to learn MySQL, HTML, PHP, WordPress, CSS and basics of HTML 5, JQuery and CSS 3. A web designing competition was organized at the end of the workshop in which Aman Gupta, Third Year, NSIT won an 8 GB pen drive. Also, all the students were given certificates of completion and were provided with tutorials of Web Designing.
The workshop helped students utilize their time in winter holidays.
Tusshar Singh, 1st year student of NSIT says “The workshop was completely training oriented, helpful to learn and explore new methods in web-development. Methods of Web-Development beyond the course structure were also taught that helped me to make my own website more attractive and user friendly.”
Sandeep Sharma, 3rd year, BITS said “The workshop was really very helpful. Before joining this workshop, I had no idea about web designing. This workshop encouraged me to take further interest in wed designing and development. This workshop was completely practical based. It helped me in understanding the basics of web designing.”
