Adieu 2010

by Noc Team on December 28, 2010

After witnessing a Febtastic month and then Marching towards the end, we finally come to the final close of the year 2010. During this eventful year Pakistan’s IT Industry did see a lot of new beginnings and many new trends. Products were launched, companies were formed and magnanimous informational IT events also took place. Awards were presented, gadgets were released and Incubation center to help initiate startups came in the forefront.

Application development on the Increase

With the increase in the application development arena many small startups initiated during this year. Many young graduates jumped in this interesting and creative work and now we have a market loaded with iPhone Application development. These young individuals with their startups provide services to international companies and at the same time are experts in making their own products with no restriction towards which platform they work. The focus of these startups has been mainly towards iPhone, Blackberry and Android. Facebook game development had been on the rise as well.

PHP Ranked top of the charts throughout the year

Jobs have been a great issue from the past couple of years in the Software Industry. But at the same time in 2010 every week the number of job openings available showed that PHP on top of the charts. This technology had the largest number of job openings available throughout the year, making PHP the most wanted technology of the year.

Incubation Centers

During 2010 the awareness about incubation centers  increased to a level that many universities initiated their own incubators inside the un9versities. And not just these universities but people who desired to go for a startup came to know about a chance for them to give a shape to their idea and earn living from it.

These incubation centers have thus enabled the people of our country to create jobs instead of moving out and searching for them. The response from the people and the results from these incubation centers have been slow and gradual. But the results will be obvious during the following year. Because it is from this point that technology business ideas have found incubators for shaping them up.

Events informed, promoted and educated

At the closing of the year we attended many conferences, seminars and other technology events unfolding informational world for the people who needed guidance. These events promoted the newbies, provided excellent information and excellent networking opportunities. Where the misguided met their right mentors and the clueless gathered technology business ideas.

So far the year has provided a lot of opportunities for the fresh entrants of the Industry and we hope that following year bring even more chances of success and prosperity for the country and its people.

nice article, but I would like to draw your attention towards a flaw in the image that is showing the year change – The transition from 0 to 1 should have been on 4th (right most) position. And the 3rd position was and will remain 1 :)
The current image is showing the transition between 2000 and 2010, which is not the case actually.
