Our participation:

 The registration for this event started 15 days before the commencement of the event.

The registration desk was set up and in a moment of time before inauguration the entire hall was filled up.

MAY I HELP YOU Desk was created so as to carry out the event successfully.

It was a dream which came true for Jayant Rajwani, with help of +Srikar Ananthula , +Raghu ram , +Santosh Viswanatham  and Sandeep for having such a Big-bang at the Apps days.

The Inauguration took off in a traditional way with lightning of lamp by the Firefox team.

Speech of motivation was given by the Director of IFHE, Raghu Ram, Sandeep Akkinapelli, Jayant Rajwani and Pranitha .

First such major event was taking place in the college , large number of developers with keen interest attended the seminars which were held after regular intervals.

  Talks by Raghuram, Santhosh, Jayant 🙂

At regular intervals, quizzes and fun activities were held to make the developers awake and prevent them from getting bored.

After several hours of coding success was in the hands of the developers who had created apps. In the morning , everyone once again gathered in the auditorium for giving presentations to the Firefox team and director about the uses of their applications and how it work.
   Everyone was eagerly waiting for their turns to come up on the stage and showcase their imaginative ideas to simplify the human demands. After the presentations which were quite impressive then came the turn for deciding the winner which were being judged by the Director of IFHE and Raghu Ram. 

 
Later we had a group photo and i delivered a vote of thanks for the college staff, Mr. D.V. Nair (SSD coordinator FST-IFHE) Firefox team and my friends for making the event such a great success.

Thanks to one and all who made this event happened 🙂
Hope to cu again.
Regards,
Srikar.
