Microsoft held ‘AppFest’ at Lovely Professional University: LPU students got chance to code for Windows

* 700 Students availed opportunity to join the community of the next generation app developers
* Students learnt and developed applications/software for Windows Phone platform

Jalandhar:  Microsoft India selected Lovely Professional University, as one out of the 54 hub centers across India, to hold India AppFest 2013.  LPU Vice Chancellor, Dr Ramesh Kanwar said: “Going under an enthusiastic response and recognizing rare opportunity, LPU students got together to develop apps for the Windows platform. Students, who wished to brush up their coding skills, geared up to code applications for the whole day.” In fact, on the day of the AppFest, near 700 young developers coded under the supervision of Microsoft Mentor, trainers and Microsoft Student Partners (MSPs). Students submitted the app online - an opportunity to make it available on the Windows Store after thoroughness. AppFest proved to be an ideal platform to learn from experts and explore latest Microsoft technologies and products. 

Microsoft Director (Strategic Audience Marketing) Pratima Amonkar is of the view:  "On one hand, the trends in the IT space have evolved over the past few years, creating greater opportunities for students and budding developers. On the other, the global youth unemployment rate is currently at 12.7 percent- double the overall unemployment rate. These two things clearly indicate a gap in demand and supply, and the obvious answer to this is that ‘given the right skills and training, there is lot young technology students can achieve today. This is exactly what we are trying to do: bring together the opportunity and those, who can utilize it.” 

Microsoft provided students with free software such as Visual Studio Express for Windows 8, and with free Windows Store registration codes through Microsoft DreamSpark. The focus remained on broad-based consumer applications, incorporating education, games, apps for social good etc. In addition to submitting the apps for evaluation for a chance to get on the Microsoft Store, the training and experience received via this programme will boost the students' employability, and create a more capable developer ecosystem in the country.
