Therap Java Fest 2012 a Success!

We hosted an online Java Festival, titled ‘Therap Java Fest’ for university students all over the country. Our main objective was to bring out the talent in the field of programming and interest them to explore the world of possibilities that Java opens up for them.

The festival comprised of various activities designed to develop and assess the development (programming) skills of the participants. Throughout the contest, a group of Therap programmers assisted the participants with feedback and answers to participants’ questions through a forum, and also provided useful learning materials.

The festival was structured so as to give its participants a taste of a full software development lifecyle. Interested participants registered individually and took a preliminary screening test designed to evaluate their basic programming skills. The selected participants then formed groups of two members for developing either a java web application or an android-based project. Each group submitted a project proposal and then implemented that idea. After the Therap Java Fest team evaluated the projects, top ranked participants were invited for a live demonstration of their projects at the GDLN Conference Room at BRAC University on November 14, 2012.

The winners were :

1st Prize: Appointment Manager

An online appointment manager, by Team ‘Three By Zero’. The members of the team were Rafi Kamal and Md. Shamim Hasnath, both from BUET (Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology).

2nd Prize: Hutbazar

An online mega shop by Team ‘Void’. The members of the team were Shihab Rahman and Rifatul Islam, both from University of Dhaka.

3rd Prize: Buddy Tracker

An Android application for tracking friends, by Team ‘BUET Barebones’. The members of the team were A.T.M Saleh and Md. Maksud Alam Chowdhury, both from BUET.”

All the projects that made the finals were awesome and the festival was a success! We hope to organize more such events in future to help increase Java awareness among young talents.

We would like to thank BRAC University, BRAC University Computer Club (BUCC) and the volunteers for helping us successfully complete the finale of Therap Java Fest by providing us with the use of their facilities and continuous support. Their contribution was critical and vital to the successful conclusion of Therap Java Fest. Lastly, here are a few photos from the finale:
