Penetration of latest technologies in Pakistan is still in its early stage. The technologies like Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, and Mixed Reality are going to be the next big thing in the future of marketing and technologies. The biggest challenge is to make these technologies accessible to the young brains of our country. We believe that by providing these technologies to the young people will take these new hot technologies to the next new level of implementation. For this purpose Euphoria Pakistan introduced series of workshops the purpose of these workshops is to enable people and train them so they can leverage these technologies and build the next big thing that will change the face of Pakistan.
In our education system, new technologies are not introduced. We are still teaching student old obsolete technologies that are now only limited to books only. To change this trend euphoria took a step and organized series of workshops. In which we taught students about new technologies that are being used around the globe.
The workshop started from the basic level of game development to advance level of AR and VR experience creation. Almost 120 students participated from different universities of Lahore and learned about these technologies.
After workshop Haider Zahoor an attendee of workshop said
“ A fun event and informative. 10/10, would love to join again.
It was a informative and friendly environment. I met a lot of different people, each with a sophisticated personality and a diligent attitude towards a fellow learner. I learned stuff which I hadn’t even thought I would learn, from both the teachers and the fellow students. It was fun being in a different environment than what I usually am a part of. I found it very resourceful to be in an environment where I can share my knowledge without being discriminated/labeled as a “nerd” or in a more “Pakistani sense,” “Kitabi Keera”/”Bookworm.” Me and (hopefully) my fellow students found it especially useful that the conveyor was intuitive and was answering everyone’s questions with an excellent construction of sentences. The speech at the end of the session was impressive. I had previously considered Pakistan to be a very “linear “minded country regarding Information Technology/Software Development, but after learning about Plan9, I was impressed. As an individual character quotes: “Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in awhile, or the light won’t come in.” I now know what Sir Isaac meant when he said this.
I thank everyone who joined this event and helped me grow emotionally.”
The aim of the workshop was to spread the latest technology in youth and teach them the Startup Ecosystem of Pakistan. Students from different universities attended this workshop and learned hottest technologies of the decade.
