by Noc Team on April 20, 2011

Photography by Talal Masood IT Industry is gaining momentum on its events, and so is CodeWeek. With the success of our first event, we decided to go for another this month, and on 16th of April, we welcomed an inquisitive and amazing audience along with remarkable speakers. The seminar lapsed for complete four hours where four speakers presented highly interactive presentations. Speakers belonged to varied companies and came from different backgrounds. As a result of which, different experiences came in the forefront.

The GameBoss (GenITeam), Vopium, Adamsoft International, and Anahata Solutions stepped forward in order to support us in our efforts. With that Shapes provided us with their conference room which ended up being fully packed. Not only professionals from varied companies but coders and developers from different companies also joined us as audience.

Faizan Iftikhar, Head Mobile Product Development, The GameBoss

Our event was opened by Faizan Iftikhar who is currently working as head mobile product development at The GameBoss, which is an offshoot of GenITeam. Faizan over a period of time has showed his ability to deliver substantial revenue, productivity, and quality improvements through well-managed, on-time projects. At the seminar he provided the audience with a review on mobile market, he also highlighted the significant aspects of revenue streams and also highlighted why one should choose Android. His success tips in accordance with the Game Boss way were well received by the audience.

The event was closed by Usman Sharif, who is currently associated with Anahata Solution as its CTO. His topic was ‘Integration with Android Applications’. He discussed Android primer (Activities, Intents, Application Development) and provided with actual code. He developed a hello world application in front of the audience. The presentation of the real code did excite the audience and as a result they were energized with real coding. The event ended with refreshments and networking opportunities  for the audience. Even after asking many questions from speakers during the presentations the attendees had  more to ask even after the seminar was over. The question answer session after each presentation made the whole seminar interactive. The discussions which followed were highly appreciated and expertly handled by the speakers. Stay tuned for more such events, because our innovative banks are packed with amazing ideas.

I attended the seminar and found it really information. Thanks for the codeweek team.

Usman Sharif’s presentation was quite inspiring and helped me to create my First android app, which will be launched within a week.

Asim Ghafoor’s marketing tactics are quite remarkable even. Even if we make free apps we can earn cash using them.

It is really appreciated that in pakistan work on mobile application has started as well as the ANDROID has given a chance to develop more user friendly enviornmented application for user. Before this i have come to know from CODEWEEK that PHOTO EDITOR application for mobile ( I think it was for black berry or IPOD) has stood first on their official site and this was developed by a Pakistani.

I really appreciate the CODEWEEK for their struggle to encourage Pakistani Software Houses in front of the world. Dear Admin if you feel that i can work for CODEWEEK then let me know. i am really interested to promote Pakistan Software (Web, desktop, mobile etc ) Developer and want to redirect the clients towards pakistan.

It can become very earning industry.. special mobile application development..

Best Regards

You should have mentioned some informative points here too. So that people who could not attend it could get some benefit too.

I didn’t come to know when the seminar was held. But a good effort by you people.
