The land of the thunder dragon eagerly awaited the arrival of SELISE’s very own Farhana, where she was all set to conduct a three week long training program. Arranged by the Department of Information Technology and Telecom (DITT), this marked the first time Bhutan has been a part of a training program of this scale. SELISE was approached by Tshering Cigay Dorji, CEO of Thimphu Tech Park (TTPL), to conduct the program and SELISE couldn’t have been more excited to be a part of this initiative.
Farhana Haque is working as a Senior Software Engineer, who has been with SELISE for over three years now. She also leads the Mobile Team in the Dhaka premises, and naturally was the best person to take on the mantle of a trainer.
In Bhutan, she had a class of 21 students- all of them who are current ICT officers, ready to learn more about Android Application Development. Over the course of three weeks, Farhana conducted a crash course that covered all the basics- starting from UI development, code functionality, to topics such as network integration and deployment. A lot of focus was given on building the basics and ensuring the best practices when it comes to developing an application on Android.
