Microsoft Developers Express Huge Interest with Telerik Technologies at TechEd India

TechEd India 2014 is the premier annual event of Microsoft conducted in Bangalore, India. This year TechEd was hosted on Nov 5 & 6 2014. Telerik India was a proud bronze sponsor at the event. Telerik presence was marked with an exclusive booth that had technical staff available to answer any questions that the community may have. The presence was accentuated with a huge backdrop with Telerik logo & design.

TechEdBooth

On Day 1, we were ready for the crowd. But the rush at the booth was not what we were prepared for. The showcase area was a big room the sponsors had their booths put up. Within no time we had a big crowd around our booth talking about the latest from Telerik technologies. Most of the talk was around our AJAX/Kendo UI suites. We give away our much loved Ninja T-shirts to the most enthusiastic lot. We had a lot of questions on our DevCloud offering as well.TechEdCrowd

Lohith Nagaraj, delivered a jam packed session on Day 2 from the main stage at TechEd India. Titled “ASP.NET MVC – Latest & Greatest So Far” the session saw over 300+ folks voting by their feet.

To select students we asked them two simple questions,

  2. Why we should select you for the workshop ?

There were more than 80 students who shown interest in attending workshop. We chosen 13 out of them. Event started at 11 am . Workshop was scheduled till 6 pm but seeing high energy and enthuse of students , we extended workshop by 2 hrs more. Workshop got over at 8pm.

Students learnt mainly on following topics and created two hybrid apps titled “Twitter Search “ and “Indian States”

  • Icenium IDE
  • Kendo UI Mobile
  • Difference between Native Apps and Hybrid Apps
  • Design guidelines for Hybrid App

image

Day started with keynote session by Telerik Country manger Abhishek Kant. He did set up dais for the day . Students got charged and motivated for day long coding after interaction with him.

As day progressed students learnt about various aspect of Hybrid App development paradigm. They created app using Icenium and Kendo UI Mobile.

All 13 students created these two Hybrid Apps

  1. Twitter Search Application
  2. Indian State App

In order to create these two apps students learnt about ,

  • Working with Kendo UI data source
  • Working with Kendo UI Mobile ListView
  • Working with Kendo UI Template
  • Understanding Icenium IDE
  • Building and packaging app using Icenium
  • Certificate management in Icenium

For us it was great day intercating and tecahing young students on latest of the mobile app development paradigm. We are excited for more of these types of events.
