My Experience of ACM-NUCES (FAST) – Developer’s Day 2011


DSC01219 After having a terrible appendix operation and a bed rest for continuous 20 days I was out of touch with everything I was addicted to i.e Blogging and extra curricular activities. And just when I got better I restarted tasting the beautiful flavors of life. On 16th March 2011, I attended a “Developer’s Day” event organized by ACM-NUCES FAST University Karachi. The event consisted of IT professionals, active and talented techy students from around the city. The event  had many competitions in which one could participate and I chose the “10 Minutes Tech Talk”. Each participant was given 10 minutes to share his brilliant tech idea with the audience and that idea was to be extra ordinary and unique enough so that it could impress the judges from software house companies.

The Start of the Day

The day turned out more interesting yet funny than I expected. I was informed just the day before the event (15th March) that I must take part in the competition. I was tired and  physically week due to my recent appendix operation and had no intention of taking part in it. Some friends insisted and they took me to the event early in the morning. I was un prepared with no power point presentation slides, no notes and no nothing. I sat almost for three hours scratching my head and looking at presentations given by some extremely talented computer engineering students. But as the event continued I managed to prepare my presentation and the topic I chose as the “IDEA” was BLOGGING :p I was almost prepared and just needed a laptop so that I could display my blog on the projector instead of any power point slides. It took me a further one hour fighting with laptop and USB bugs but then finally I somehow managed to made up my mind and was ready to give it a shot!
I started the presentation with formal greetings and then a series of interactive questions from the audience. I saw a healthy participation from all corners. I described the term “Blog” and “Blogger” and paid more focus on why should One Blog? After having shared how much have blogging helped me till now to build up a happy online livelihood and how it has helped me with my day to day expenses, university costs and gym and studies, I saw people getting more and more engaged in the topic. But then during the presentation since I was unprepared and all spontaneous, I accidently slipped off few statements on some students who presented before me and the IT professionals and these statements were unfortunately taken as criticism. My point was that students often work hard day and night to become good gentlemen. They work hard at academic levels so that they could get good jobs in future. They always live up with this growing job tension in mind and often become patients of hopelessness, frustration and depression. I encouraged the students that everyone of them is a genius and if they apply their talents wisely by blogging for instance then they will have a life time happy investment, whose revenue size will keep on multiplying and will never die. I emphasized that a Blogger is self dependent and fully financially stable and does never have to worry about whether someone hires him as an employee or not because he has his own ever expanding and flourishing Company (Traffic and i.e Revenue)!. I termed some former ideas as manipulated carried forward copy cat adopted ideas and this was what that provoked half the audience and then it was poor me and the angry audience. I personally realized that I should have been a bit softer in my tone but at least I learnt that it is really important to come Prepared when you face a huge crowd.

My Achievement?



No matter what happened in the end but I really enjoyed the entire day. It was interesting, funny but a great learning experience. I did succeed in receiving some great motivating feedback from my university mates and from other students and the best part was that just after the presentation “I received a JOB offer from jeemsolutions!”  and that's what I termed as the biggest applause! :)

Last words:

What I did that day was to show my love for Blogger and the beautiful art of Blogging. Blogging by every definition is the rapidly expanding internet phenomena that is revolving everywhere. Its all about sharing and learning. It has helped thousands of people with a happy, friendly, social, multicultural, academic and fun life. For Bloggers Blogosphere is their only virtual world where they feel at peace, where you find nothing but love, respect and honour. Forever do we Blog and forever will we Blog! Peace out! :)

  4. Well mustafa try to avoid criticism, Because criticism may win the argument but may lose the person whom you are arguing with, Else every thing was fine with the presentation

    ReplyDelete
  5. I was there in the audience. Had presented my project before you.

    1. You were going fine, until you reached a point when you had nothing else to talk about and that is when you started attacking other people and 'devs' in general.

    2. Its not just a blogger that is independant. It is a 'Freelancer' and anyone can be a freelancer. It can be a dev, a blogger, a security analyst, anyone... even the ones with good writing skills can earn without having someone bossing them.

    3. You could have used your facts and figures to a good use rather than using them to prove that you are the best their can be. As the place you were honored to talk at, was FAST and if you would have looked around you, their were 'world-class' achievers of every field of IT. You or your friend might have been awarded by P@SHA but some of the attendees were even awarded by big names such as Microsoft, IEEE. (google about them)

    Anyway, my apologies if I offend you in anyway but you need to reposition yourself in your mind. By which I mean that you have a long way to go to be called someone 'successful'

  6. @Bhavesh

    Thanks pal and I still have to meet them and see what exactly are things at work.

    @Ayush
    Your teacher did surely had a gentleman delivering the talk. :> and I haven't made up my mind yet.

    @Vishal
    Those words meant a lot buddy and thank you for all the kind motivation and concern. I wish I could design a template for you but as time goes on we are often over burdened with too much responsibilities. I have exams ahead and few uncompleted projects. I will tell you about some other good designers who may do the job for you and much better then me :)

    @Rafay
    I do accept the fact and have already acknowledged it :)

    @Asad
    Hey glad to have you here pal. And no I am surely not offended but rather flattered to have read your views on the talk.

    1) As I mentioned earlier it was all spontaneous and unprepared. I did saw many stats and wrong non-credited projects being displayed. Even Tabi's Gaming programming was done by Taha but no one objected to it and gave him applause instead. But Yes I realized I should have not gone too hard on developers at least :)

    2) I would pardon correct you here pal. A security analyst, a developer or that anyone with due respect as you termed are Age bounded. Blogging can be done even by a 12 year old school guy and yet he can earn fair enough to cover all his day costs. That's where the point lies. I wish I had more time to have shared the blessings of blogging which rarely do people especially in Pak realize. There is a lot to it. I hope my next post will clarify it.

    3)I do respect and agree to that. Dude everyone is best when it comes to his field of interest and yes I will claim it again that out of those approximately 70 bloggers sitting there, all hands were put down when I asked "Is there anyone with 10,000-17,000 daily visitors?" And there was all silence. That's where I mentioned that rafay, haris nadeem and stupid I are blessed with this gift Alhamdulillah. By best I meant we love to share our knowledge and If given a little more time, I was about to announce that I would teach for free everything that could turn a common student into a freelance active blogger. A career like Development, security analysis requires time and demanded amount of study but blogging can be given a go even from this very day.
    Dear the technology anaylst there and those undoubtedly genius guys all have my due respect but they were there to show what they had but I as a Blogger was there to Show what you Can Have. I shared my revenue secrets to motivate you guys that with a little effort what you can have and on my next visit to FAST I will come prepared with many facts and figures to cherish you all with what was missed mentioning on that day.

    I hope I was clear enough to clarify some doubts. :)


    And I highly appreciated your thought on this topic and you are always welcomed. You had a great presentation and Congratz for the award. :>

  12. @Mohammad
    Present in the talk???
    What does that mean???

    @Syed
    You are correct at your end but look at the other end as well..
    When Mohammad was stuck in between he had nothing to speaking and thereby he got under pressure and his brain didn't function well..

    This can happen to anyone in this world when he is facing large audience and got stuck..

    He told whatever came in his mind because he didn't had time to analyze what he is saying is good or not..

    If you were in Mohammad's place then I BET you would done something similar to Mohammad.

    This is my experience on a person's mind reading.

    Hope you understand the other end.
    No Hard Feelings.

    Thank You

  19. I really don't have much to say but i think you did more than good and about criticism, well it's just that we all have our own views,some present this in a more proper manner and name this as their opinion and others who not familiar with this art are blamed as critical in thoughts. I'm sure you'll learn this art by time. After all you are only at a learning stage my friend :P one more thing my friend keep up the awesome work! who knows , one day you'd be one of the biggest bloggers! ciao :)

    Thank you pal. I visited your blog and it is just great. A little focus at post titles is required. Write more text and upload less and less media graphics. Robots love text. Kindly read these posts: SEO

    Pay more attention to seo and less to social media. Hope this helps. :)

  33. I am again inspired, I was about to be hopeless in my life until such time I open my mind into blogging! I am prepared now to train myself hard in this field! Unfortunately people here hardly believe because only very few people engaged in blogging in the place where I live, but like my aunt and uncle they earn a living online! Although they are not bloggers, but it is intertwined! My point here is earning a good living on your living room facing your pc without a boss! I am not yet earning now, and most of the times spend money for this, but I new there is a great reward in the end and I believe on it! Whether choosing to be a freelancer like in academia or making your own blog as long as you are motivate then success is not too high to reach! I am so happy for you my friend! I am tired with my work now, I am all over loaded with paperworks in the office, so I guess Blogging is my escape! For now I am always looking for ideas which will help me to go on! This is a career! This is one of the best careers around one can have! I am moving from this blog to another to look for tips and tricks... I also want to share here, for all new bloggers that are here everyday, that 'Blogging is like Building a Muscle' that is a statement from Darren Rowse from Problogger! Well, its correct, blogging needs effort and consistent work out! God Bless you!
