TASK (Telangana Academy for Skill and Knowledge) is a non-profit organization, a brainchild of the Government of Telangana for bringing synergy among institutions of Government, Industry & Academia with an objective of offering quality human resources and services to the industry. It provides us access to modules for enhancing our technical, personal and organizational skills at highly subsidized rates.

Recently TASK organized a workshop in association with Samsung on Tizen, their own mobile operating system. The workshop was conducted in Spoorthy College of Engineering and students from almost 15 different colleges participated in this workshop. We were trained on the latest Tizen software development kit to develop applications for the operating system. The 1st phase of the workshop was live for 6 days and was very successful in fostering the students.

The 2nd phase of the workshop started on 10th December, 2015. TASK selected only 2 qualified students from each college and sent them invites to attend the 2nd phase. The 2nd phase was only a 1 day session where we were directly trained by Samsung’s official developers. The lead Software Engineer and Web Master from Samsung came forward to spend their valuable time to train us on the latest technologies which are used for developing the Tizen applications.

At the end of the day, the Samsung officials conducted a competition to test our grasping and learning skills and announced prizes for the top 2 competitors. I have won the first prize in the competition and they rewarded me with a Samsung Z3 mobile.
