Australian Software Factory Becomes Operational

With great pleasure and sense of satisfaction, I like to share the news that the Australian Software Factory (ASF) became operational in the School of Computer Science, the University of Adelaide from December 2015. The idea was conceived with the vision of enabling talented software development students to gain the knowledge and experience of applying industrial strengthen software development methods, processes, and tools on real life software development projects for enhancing their productivity and employability. We selected seven highly energetic and committed students to join the Australian Software Factory this year – six students are participating in the ASF for fulfilling the requirements of their Bachelor of Software Engineering degree work experience and one of them is a summer internship student. Unfortunately, we had to decline a few very good International students because of some procedural and legal ambiguities, however, we are trying to get the ambiguous points clarified. A brief description of the goals, and logistics of the ASF has been provided below:Read More »Australian Software Factory Becomes Operational

Open Day Talk on Software Driven Innovation

Academic institutes’s Open days are hugely important occasions as these events provide much needed opportunities to the prospective students and their parents to find out all sorts of details about different academic programs, faculty and students’ profiles, academic and extra-curricular environmental facilities, and career prospects. These events also enable academic staff to directly speak with the prospective students and their parents about different degree programs, their suitability for the types of backgrounds different students may have, and how those degree programs can fulfil the career goals of the prospective students. I really enjoy these events as there are so many exciting things to do and observe. The last open day at the University of Adelaide was really very special and exciting event that I enjoyed a lot. From the School of Computer Science, I gave the open day talk titled – Software Driven Innovation – was purported to convey the message that software development is an exciting area of work with huge potential for successful career path with the right type of aptitude and training. I also spoke with several parents and their children about different aspects and benefits of studying Computer Science in general and Software Engineering in particular. The summary of my talk is below:Read More »Open Day Talk on Software Driven Innovation
