App Day – Narula Institute of Technology

App Day – Narula Institute of Technology

Hi, Its App Day time now. My first ever App Day in Kolkata. Was little bit tensed regarding the output of the event but at the end of the day, it was quite satisfactory, maybe there was no app published on that day, but a group of enthusiastic pupil participated for the App Day and they tried their best to make a standard app.

It was Kritanj 2015, the official Techno Management festival of Narula Institute of Technology and the Firefox OS App day was the very first event of that Tech Fest. Thanks to all the FSAs of Narula Institute of Technology, their club Moz Club – NIT for helping us conducting this event. I would like to mention some names who helped us a lot for organizing this event and they are:

1. Afnan Kayal – Club Lead – Moz Club NIT

2. Joy Roy

3. Sandeep Mishra

4. Zeba Saha

5. Radha Kumari

We started at around 12 P.M. and we extend it till 4 P.M. I regret to say that, there was very poor community response. Nobody except Sumantro Mukherjee, Shahid Farooqui and Debapriya Bhattacharya make it to the event. Biraj Karmakar was not there because he was out of station due to some commitment. Thanks to our FSA of the month March, Ranodeep to make it to the event venue and for helping us there. 🙂

 

At about 20-25 pupil sat and tries to make applications. Thought there was no complete app for the shortage of time but yes, they atleast tried, that pleased me very well. 🙂
