If you wish to change a country, start with villages and rural parts.
India is a land of talented young minds, and all of them could not be found on Twitter or in the big cities. So, to teach and put them on the right path, one has to travel to the remotest part of this vast country. So, I, with Shivprasad Koirala, traveled almost 1750 KM from Delhi to SGM College Kolhapur to teach Angular to around 100 students from various engineering colleges in that region. These young students were highly talented, inquisitive, and innocent with dreams in their eyes, and I had a fantastic time teaching them Angular.
In 2 days of the workshop, students learned about the following things:
- What is an API
- What is a package.json
- What is npm
- Installing Angular CLI
- Creating the first Angular application
- Data Binding in Angular
- Using directives such as *ngFor, *ngIf to display data
- Creating custom pipes
- Basic routings
- Creating basic service
- Consuming API for GET operations
I was amazed to see participation from the students and how quickly all of them grasped the concepts. They all created essential apps, and in my opinion, now they are on the path to becoming good Angular developers.
I must mention here that this was not possible without the vision of SGM college management, their faculties, and the Shivprasad Koirala Finishing School Initiative. I tender my sincere thanks to,
- Dr. Sanjay Chavan, Director of SGM college. His work in this region to enable students in the engineering and the medical field is admirable.
- Swami sir, HOD of Computer Science Department, SGM College, for his proactivity to help students in becoming Job-Ready
- Mahesh Sir, Professor in Computer Science Department, SGM College. He perfectly felicitated the whole event.
- Last but not least, Shivprasad Koirala sir and Questpond for their fantastic work in enabling students with Finishing Schools in India and Nepal.
I love teaching and enabling the developer community and would again love to go to the villages and remotest part of India to help them learn the latest technologies to become Job-Ready Developers.
These students were really good and you may meet some of them in ng-India. Happy Coding.
