Flex In India – Updates

Web2.0 is spreading in India and so is Flex with it 🙂

After a succesful semester of “Web2.0 & RIA (Rich Internet Applications)” elective at IITB, Bangalore (for which, I’m proud to be a part of the visiting industry faculty), the much desired course has now made it into the curriculum of the Visvesvaraya Technological University (VTU).

VTU is a university that has 111 affiliated colleges in the state of Karnataka, in India (kind of apt, as Bangalore, hailed as the Silicon Valley of the East is the capital of this state). The university provides heavily for the demand for IT & Computer engineers for the booming IT & IT Enabled Services industry in the country.

The course ware consists of the following parts…

  • Overview of We2.0 and its perceptions
  • Key concepts in Web2.0
  • Overview of Data Handling in RIAs -This includes technologies like WebServices, E4X, XML
  • Introduction to Open Source Flex2.0
  • Introduction to AJAX
  • … some more

I’m mighty interested and excited about this. Hope I’ll get to be a part of this, just like the IITB venture.

Please, everyone spread the news and ask the students you know to request and signup for this elective in their respective colleges. Lets make this a grand success and a precursor of more to come… Go RIA… Go Flex 🙂
