New-generation industry visits for future leaders
The Department of Computational Science, Brainware University organised an Industry Visit on “Software Delivery Life Cycle: A Simplified Discussion” on January 28, 2022 to give students a glimpse into what it means to work in the IT industry. Students got a chance to interact with seasoned industry insider Mr. Shamik Halder(General Manager and Practice Head, OSS Inventory Management (OSP+ISP), DevOps Driver), the resource person for the event.
Mr Halder explained the basic skills an aspirant needs to have in order to make it big in the field. He urged participants to explore arenas beyond their curriculum and develop niche areas of expertise based on market trends.
In order to showcase the way in which a software is developed, Mr Halder gave a live demonstration of software development. He foregrounded how at every stage of the development process the client’s input has to be incorporated.
The last part of the session was devoted to answering the career-related questions of the students. Mr Halder’s parting remark about being proactive in creating the future resonated greatly with the students who reported that they would like to participate in more such innovative events.
