Post Workshop Experience
I had a very good experience on my first one-day workshop at FSFTN. This was the first time I handled a crowd with different streams with different knowledge levels, as the crowd had students from the second, third and fourth year from IT, ECE and EEE streams and also working people. Hence it was slightly difficult for me to engage them! But according to the feedback we got a very positive response from the crowd especially a great response for the morning session. Next time I have planned to improve my time management and content delivery skills.
Summary of Feedback
- Regarding the session, participants expect more amount of hands-on sessions, hence I suggest keeping the workshops as practical as possible to the fullest in the future.
- Regarding the future workshops, many are interested in web development, Big data, Android, cloud computing, blockchain, AI and ML.
- Regarding the improvements, quality of the projector can be improved.
- Regarding the food, most of them have reported it as good.
Plans For The Future Activities
I have introduced them about F-droid and encouraged them to develop Android applications and contribute them back to the community. We are planning to keep them engaged by sharing resources periodically through a group in telegram.
