Whenever I remember my college days, the memories I made during the fests come to my mind and I feel so good about it. And being a tech freak, tech fests were always very close to my heart.
Tech fests have been one of the most successful fests of all time and of all the colleges, where there is not just a monotonous flow of knowledge, instead, there are highly interactive activities, workshops and events which even let a layman equally participate just as much as our beloved geeks.
Have you been to a tech fest before? Or is your college going to have one soon? No problem if you haven't been to any one of these ever, or if you're going to attend one soon. I'll give you an overview of what you SHOULD JUST NOT MISS. So without wasting any more of your time, let me share with you some interesting aspects of tech fests.
Amusing, compelling, enthralling, captivating, and hypnotic are not just synonyms to the word 'entertaining' but are also synonymous to this extremely engaging concept of Rule The Line. In this, the participant is supposed to make a 'line follower BOT' capable of following a black line over a white mat using any kind of a microcontroller.
Exciting, isn't it? Told ya!
Let's accept it, we all tend to start sweating from our palms with just the thought of placements. But RELAX! We have a saviour, guys, we have saviour. And the name PLACEMENT, MOCK PLACEMENT! Another fantastic concept of competition that got invented through tech fests is this one. In this, the participant has to pass through all those phases which he/she has to pass during the actual college campus placements like written, group discussion and personal interview. With this, every student taking part gets a chance to experience the torturous journey of interviews before going to the actual one.
One of the most crowded areas recorded in all the tech fests are always the ones which have racing competitions going on. Specifically, Roborace competitions let the students build their own cars or BOTs and then put those to test through race. And if this is not exciting enough, the winners of these competitions are awarded with some really thick cash prize. You don't wanna miss out on this one, do you?
In a time where there are headlines being made on artificial intelligence's ability to take over the world by 2035, it will be more than a shocker for us if it doesn't have a workshop on its name in a tech fest. For the not so geeky ones out there, let me help you in getting to know AI a little better. Artificial intelligence is exhibited by machines, unlike the natural intelligence which we all, as animals, demonstrate.
The Internet Of Things brings networks together, be it any device, either a smartphone, or a sensor, and lets them communicate not only among themselves but also across different networking types. With its evolving popularity, the Internet of Things is always found to hold a big place in tech fests.
Gone are the days, or should I say, going are the days when we used to have salesmen knocking on our doors to promote and sell their products to achieve their daily targets. Well, all thanks to Digital Marketing. It is an umbrella term for all the digital efforts made for marketing. Because of its significance online and the way it is expanding today, any tech fest will have to have a workshop on Digital Marketing.
