PITB-LUMS Training

At last; long break; i am going to attend two month training, Advanced IT training , at LUMS . Upon request of my colleagues and office fellows i am going to maintain a BLOG of the training so that it could be helpful for others.

May Allah help me out !! Ameen

Following is the brief introduction to the course along with link to the course schedule.


The biggest impediment in the growth of the IT industry in Pakistan is a dearth of adequately-trained workforce. Most fresh graduates lack the experience to handle a large-scale industrial-strength project, typically involving several thousands lines of code, a variety of OEM components, programming paradigms and development tools. Likewise, typical IT college education often lacks formal training for working in large teams -- collaboratively designing, implementing, optimizing, testing and deploying non-trivial solutions in response to an evolving set of client requirements. where as, a successful IT professional must have excellent presentation skills and command over technical writing.

The LUMS software Boot Camp is designed as an intensive 9 weeks training program to turn fresh college graduates into industry-ready IT professionals. The software boot camp will be structured around hands-on industry-style projects, involving teamwork and exposure to real development tools and development methodologies. Additionally, the boot camp will include workshops on soft-skills, imparting training in communication skills, project management, cost and risk analyses, entrepreneurship and identification of industry trends
