Dream does not become a reality through magic; it takes dedication, determination and lots of hard work.”
This is the mantra of the 4 future engineers of JECRC UDML College, whose months of rigorous hard work has paid off.
The college team “Webflax” has been selected in the “Microsoft Imagine Cup 2015” and has clinched a place in the TOP 9 teams of India. Under the guidance of team mentors Asst. Prof. Ashish Ameriya and Asst. Prof. Vishal Kothari, the 4 members of the team – Aditya, Anurag, Rupakshi and Akanksha, all from Computer Science branch have developed an app named “Farmer Amigo”, which has been immensely praised and held in high esteems by the judges.
Giving more information, the Team leader Aditya Kumar said, “Lately due to bouts of unexplained weather conditions, rains and hailstorm have destroyed most of the crops, driving the farmers into such a state of grief that they are committing suicides. Our app will be a respite for them in such cases. The team plans to spread awareness about the app among the farmers soon after the contest.”
Around 150 countries participate in this International Championship every year. The next stage of the tournament will be held at N.G.F. College of Engineering and Technology, Palwal, Haryana on 23 and 24 April, for which the final preparations have begun.
The College Principal Dr. Ram Rattan and Prof. Vijeta Kumawat, HOD CS Dept. wish the team luck and hope to see them win the contest.
