New course by JKUAT Endeavour graduates
Following the success of the first JKUAT Endeavor program which involved a course in mobile application development in Java some IT under students under the umbrella of Jkuat Linux Users Group (JLUG) teamed up and approached some students of the first endeavor program. The students approached were Omondi Ochieng, Kirui Kennedy and Masai Abel. Their request was that they too needed to learn the same as they had missed out in the first endeavor program. The class is made up of around 20 students all from the IT department.
The course is to last for six weeks, one session every Saturday. The first lesson under this program kicked off on 20th February this year. The course introduction was done by Kirui. It covered the various aspects of mobile telephony, its associated technologies and the available market for mobile applications. The course curriculum was also discussed and the goals to be achieved were laid down. The first lab was then given to the students in order to gauge their programming capabilities. Since the available time is limited the students were divided into groups and advised to start thinking of possible projects as early as possible.
