PES Innovation Lab is proud to introduce the first of a series of weekly workshops aimed at students of all branches and semesters.
The topics we have planned for future workshops include both technical topics like machine learning, web applications and API programming, as well as non-technical, but equally crucial topics such as applying for universities abroad, applying for Google Summer of Code, etc.
The workshop is being conducted by Akshay Vasudeva Rao (PES1201800310) on the necessary thought processes and discipline of Project Management & Planning. Many students, having built tiny apps in high school which usually do not span more than two or three components, often find themselves daunted by projects in university, where they are expected to build projects in an organised, planned manner.
The workshop will last two hours and will cover the following topics:
1. What is Project Management as a discipline? Why does it matter to YOU?
2. What is a "Project"?
3. Project Life Cycle
4. Process Groups
5. Should you do a certification?
