All students dream of coding for Microsoft, but only 10,000 of them will get a chance this year. The 26th of this month will be the day of their dreams for these ten thousand students who some time ago wouldn’t believe that it would come true so soon! Let me now take you through the entire story.
The Delhi College of Engineering in Delhi and the GL Bajaj Institute of Technology, and 50 other institutes throughout the country have invited students to be a part of an AppFest where they get a chance to code under the able guidance of Microsoft mentors and Microsoft Student Partners. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, what say?
Pratima Amonkar, Director Strategic Audience Marketing, believes that the changing trends in IT and the increasing rate of global unemployed youth facilitate a gap between demand and supply, which is why she suggests that provided the right skill and training, the youth of today can reach the zenith of their careers. There’s nothing that can stop them. She is delighted with the positive response indicated by enthusiasm throughout the country.
Talking about Microsoft India, I believe that it needs no introduction. Established in 1975, it’s the world’s leader in personal and business computing. It was brought to India in the year 1990 and since then has been doing commendable work in its field in 9 cities of our country.
These include Ahemadabad, Banglore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata, Mumbai, New Delhi, and Pune. We should be grateful to Microsoft for coming to India and helping us curb unemployment!
